Public Engagement - training Training and development
Applications are now open for this online workshop taking place 30 July that aims to give early career researchers tangible and practical policy engagement tips and ideas.
Voice of Young Science is offering this opportunity for early career researchers (ECRs) in the UK to find out how to communicate evidence to policymakers.
Applications are now open for their first ever online Policy Engagement workshop taking place on Friday 30 July 2021.
The interactive workshop is inspired by Sense about Science's experience of working with researchers and policymakers over two decades to shape and influence policy at national and international level. ECRs and VoYS members will learn about what policy is and get a breakdown of the British policymaking landscape, understand the societal and personal benefits of getting involved, how evidence is used in policymaking and the routes to engaging with policymakers. They will take away some tangible and practical policy engagement tips and ideas.
Deadline to apply for a free place is Monday 5 July.
