Is this course right for me?

Target Audience: Researchers, KE Staff, ECRs, research directors, directors of impact.

How can my research be picked up by policymakers? How do governments and parliaments use research? Can I engage with policy without being 'political'? Is government interested in qualitative research? Are there policy internships? How can I measure policy impact?
Researchers have an opportunity to influence the world of government policy in a number of ways but it is not always obvious where to start. This session will scotch a few myths and offer a few suggestions on how to get you research noticed by policymakers.
The discussion will be led by Nick Bibby, director of the Scottish Policy & Research Exchange.
