BES and NERC Policy Training Workshop

The BES and NERC knowledge exchange learning and development workshop on science policy interactions commences today. The workshop will involve participants from a variety of backgrounds including government, academia, and focus on improving science policy communication within ecological and environmental disciplines.

The two day workshop will feature presentations, case study exercises and group working with the overall aim of improving policy development within the participating organisations, and forming a network of “ambassadors” from the scientific community for policymakers to approach. The policy workshop is also an opportunity for scientists to share their experiences from the policy environment. This is the third annual policy training workshop aimed specifically at early career researchers (no more than 12 years since finishing their PhD).
