NIJ is seeking proposals for criminal justice research and evaluation that includes a researcher-practitioner partnership component. Through researcher-practitioner partnerships, criminal justice practitioners can gain new skills in assessing programs and measuring outcomes. Likewise, criminal justice researchers can better understand the goals and purposes criminal justice practitioners seek to achieve. Ultimately, these partnerships provide criminal justice practitioners with practice- and policy-relevant information while affording researchers the opportunity to contribute to the current body of knowledge. NIJ intends to support criminal justice research in the two following areas related to new and ongoing researcher-practitioner collaborations:Junior Faculty/Research Associate Grant Program to Promote Criminal Justice Researcher-Practitioner Partnerships.Criminal Justice Researcher-Practitioner Fellowship Placement Program.
