Policy@Manchester is offering researchers a chance to get a basic grounding in public policy and policymaking; with the aim of helping them better understand opportunities for impact.
Introduction to UK Policy Making and Influencing, run by Policy@Manchester, will run on Wednesday 28 March, 2.00-4.30pm.
This session is designed to be a primer on what is meant by public policy and policymaking, the environment in which national and regional policy is made, and the policy actors who have the ability to influence decisions.
It is suitable for those with no or little public policy experience, who want to understand more about the policy environment and landscape regionally and nationally, and how they might use their research to engage. This session is aimed primarily at researchers, but will also be of relevance to PSS support staff working in engagement and knowledge exchange, who need to facilitate academic and policymaker interactions.
Places are free, but are limited and must be booked here; https://app.manchester.ac.uk/TP45P.
The session will take place on the 5th Floor in the Roscoe Building on the Oxford Rd campus. Please only book a place if you can definitely attend on that day.
