Voice of Young Scientists (VoYS) has a special opportunity for Early Career Researchers (ECR) in the UK to find out how to communicate evidence to policymakers.
The workshop will be an interactive experience 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. ECRs will take away some tangible and practical policy engagement tips and ideas.
Effective decision-making in government is guided by high-quality research, and during the pandemic there’s been an incredible call for ECRs to contribute research evidence to policy discussions. The VoYS Policy Engagement workshop is a chance to answer that call.
