Taking Decisions About Information Value

Funding: R: ResearchAward

The Long Project proposal (12 months, £100,000 at 80% fEC) is related to the Call of proposals topic focus titled ‘2.2.9 Making decisions about information value’. It will focus on providing a set of approaches that are capable of helping investigators to make better judgements about the value of elicited information ( from an interview and/or from intelligence reports) by better understanding: (i) the factors that are important when making assessments; (ii) the most effective techniques for making robust judgements; and, (iii) the best way of training, and then implementing, such techniques. We will focus on investigating the following two research questions: 1) how should an investigator make sense of diverse data points and come to a decision about, for example, the credibility of the information provided? 2) What framework or method would help investigators overcome decision biases? The outcome of this project will achieve the following objectives: <br/>- Develop methods that are novel, effective, and evidence-based.<br/>- Consider what factors are relevant in such situations, and implications for selection, training, and day to day support.
