The KBS Research Bulletin series aims to make our research more readily accessible to a wide range of interested stakeholders and, in doing so, to enhance the impact of excellent, evidence-based research on the society and economy in which we live and work. The bulletins are an important part of stakeholder engagement at the KBS. Their dissemination aligns with both the UL research focus on impactful research and the KBS strategic goals of cultivating excellence in research and contributing to our community of stakeholders in a responsible and sustainable manner.
