Invitation to Policy Impact Training for Educated Brain Researchers

last modified Mar 04, 2016 04:09 PM

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 (cs738@cam.ac.uk) or Dervila Glynn (dg248@cam.ac.uk) 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.

 

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas. 

Contact us if you are interested in joining the initiative or would like to know more.
