Diffusion of Innovation in Criminal Justice
January 31, 2014
Keck Center of the National Academies
As part of its semiannual meeting in Washington DC, the National Academies' Committee on Law and Justice (CLAJ) held a half-day seminar on diffusion of innovation for the benefit of our sponsor, the National Institute of Justice, and other interested stakeholders. The objective of this planning meeting was to establish an overall plan for a potential National Research Council study to (1) advance our understanding of how innovations are diffused, (2) identify how this knowledge can be transferred to the criminal justice field and (3) help raise returns on federal investments in research, technical assistance, and support of criminal justice innovations.
