Highlights
:: Public health policies still tend not to be well-informed by research evidence.
:: Few studies have examined capacities for evidence-informed policymaking.
:: We developed and piloted a multicountry, multistakeholder survey.
:: However, we found few examples of the application and impact of research evidence.
:: Next steps include revising and implementing the survey across Europe.
