Event description

Description

Many academics undertake research that is highly relevant to contemporary public policy debates, but how do you actually get it into the hands of those making the policy? Sending off a journal article won’t be enough; research needs to be presented in an accessible, policy-relevant format for time-poor public servants and politicians.

Join our expert panel of academics who have successfully navigated this path as they share their tips and practical suggestions for amplifying your research impact.
