Bringing policy makers and academic researchers together to enable evidenced-based policy making


Science and research is a cornerstone of the economy and a strategic government priority; however, many researchers have little experience in engaging with policy makers. The relationship between the civil service, government and parliament, and their respective functions, can seem complex and opaque to them. At the same time, policy makers can struggle to engage with research, where the policy implications and/or recommendations are buried in technical journal articles or grant reports.

The third event in this series will bring policy makers and academic researchers together to help break down these barriers, encourage mutual understanding, and ultimately enable improved evidence-based policy making.

Who should attend?

It will provide early career researchers (PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and early career faculty) with an introduction to policymaking, show them how to engage with policy makers, either by their research being used to influence policy or by moving into a career in science policy. It will focus on how policy is made in the UK, with one session focusing on international policy considerations.

The ultimate aim is to build a community of policy-engaged researchers and research-engaged policy makers.
