Professional Development Workshop in International and UK Policy (online) Friday 15th May, 11am to 3pm

This webinar, organised by the Centre for Science and Policy, will offer an insight into how evidence and expertise is sought and used by policy professionals internationally, as well as in the UK.

Speakers will discuss their own experiences of gathering and presenting expert advice and evidence for policy – how the process works, the types of policy issues that require evidence, and examples of what has and hasn’t worked well.

The session will also offer an opportunity for participants to say a few words about their research and its potential policy relevance, as well as opportunities to have small group discussions with speakers.

The webinar will take place on Friday 15 May, from 11am to 3pm UK time, with a break for lunch.

This seminar will present an overview of the many critical issues that social scientists may be interested in, and will introduce students to some empirical studies that are currently ongoing. It will provide an opportunity to discuss social science research ideas, and challenges, linked to the COVID-19 crisis.
