ESRC Educational Neuroscience Seminar Series:
The Educated Brain: from the Neuroscience to the Practice of Lifelong Learning
Invitation to attend Policy Impact Training for Early Career Researchers
14 April 2-5.30 pm
We are holding a Policy Impact Training workshop for early career researchers, as part of the ESRC Educated Brain Seminar series.
We are looking for early career researchers (PhD and post-doc level) to take part in the workshop, which will include hearing from experts from the science field on engaging with policy, and also practical skills on how to write for policy makers.
The aim is to equip researchers with some knowledge, skills and interest in writing policy briefings from each of the research seminars in the series.
Participants must be available to attend the session on 14 April and also the first research seminar (of three) on 18 April (Foundations of the Educated Brain: Infancy and Early Childhood @ Newnham College) and ideally the subsequent research seminars to be held in October 2016 and May 2017. You do not need to be working in the field of neuroscience and education to take part in this project but an interest in the use of evidence based research for policy is essential.
Please reply to Charlotte Sausman (email@example.com) or Dervila Glynn (firstname.lastname@example.org) by return (9 March deadline) with your expression of interest, including a brief note about your research and any previous experience engaging with policy (not essential). We will notify participants after 9 March to confirm places (places are limited).
Please contact us if you require further information about the seminar series.
