This training from Methods for Change will introduce you to the differences in culture between research and policy and provide you with tools to chart your path to impact.
Making an effective plan for creating policy impact with your research can increase your likelihood of success. This training will introduce you to the differences in culture between research and policy and provide you with tools to chart your path to impact.
Dr. Andrew George (Sigma Xi) will introduce the cultural differences between research and policy, based on his time establishing the North Carolina STEM Policy Fellowship and as a strategy consultant for the U.S. government, and Prof. Eric Jensen (University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, University of Warwick and Methods for Change) will introduce impact objectives, impact logic models and theories of change.
Eric and Andrew will provide concrete examples, drawing on their research and policy consulting work.
The hands-on workshop will give you the opportunity to start developing your science policy impact plans with expert advice and support. It will take place online on 21 November, 3-6pm (GMT), and you will then have a 6 month subscription to an online, self-paced training course.
The cost for this course is $249 (USD).
