This new course on Uptake of Research into Policy will bring policy makers and academic researchers together to help break down these barriers, encourage mutual understanding, and ultimately enable improved evidence-based policy making. It will provide early career researchers (PhD students, post-doctoral fellows and early career faculty) with an introduction to UK policymaking, show them how to engage with policy makers, either through their research or by moving into a career in science policy. The ultimate aim of this course is to build a community of policy-engaged researchers and research-engaged policy makers.

Covering two days from 20 to 21 August and taking place at Wellcome Genome Campus in Cambridge, confirmed speakers include MPs Heidi Allen and Vicky Ford, Becky Purvis from the Royal Society, and Ed Whiting from the Wellcome Trust.
