Official Portal launch
March 12, 2009
This portal is a joint venture being taken forward by a group of organisations that wish to make research evidence more widely available. As Baroness Estelle Morris said at its launch in March 2009
"it is a valuable resource which will help to develop an evidence informed culture in education".
As a continually evolving project, the development of eep is overseen by a Development Group. A subset of this meets as the Editorial Group which manages the content of the portal. CfBT Education Trust provides leadership and management for the project and members of the Development Group make contributions in various ways.
