Event Details

This FREE event is for academics (and PhD Students) who are interested in using their research and expertise to inform policy making, shape practice, and obtain impact. It is also for policy makers and practitioners who wish to reach out to academics and form relationships.

The event will explore the ways that we can frame academic research for non-academic audiences, disseminate findings to reach wider audiences, to forge collaborative links with these groups, and to build professional networks outside academia.

The workshop will explore the unique and common challenges we face as academics, and provide a forum to encourage and facilitate interdisciplinary, but also to provide the opportunity for participants to review these challenges from the perspectives of both the North American and United Kingdoms’ academic environments. The aim is to discuss and share best practice on how scholars may work with policymakers to impact their chosen policy area.

Overview of Day

Session One: Bridging the Gaps Between Research, Policy, and Practice - The purpose of this session is for the panellists to suggest ways to frame academic research for non-academic audiences, to disseminate findings to reach wider audiences, to forge collaborative links with these groups, and to build professional networks outside academia. The panellists will be sourced from the broader Washington/East Coast area, and academics that can speak to conducting collaborative, impactful research beyond academia. The main focus of this session is to be practical skills based, sharing knowledge on how to obtain impact and forge practitioner-academic relationships. The aim is to discuss and share best practice on how scholars may work with policymakers to impact their chosen policy area. The format will be panel based, and then followed by a roundtable discussion.

Lunch

Session Two: Policy Engagement Training Workshop - This will be a hands-on policy engagement training session to help show individuals how, and equip individuals with the skills, to work with policymakers to impact their chosen policy issue with evidence and research. Through this session participants will strengthen their understanding of the policy-making process and development insight into how to devise strategies of engagement. The workshop will also focus on the importance of building networks, improving research and materials for a policy-making audience, and a discussion of tools to elevate scholarly voices in public debates.

The event itself will also provide a networking opportunity, and the chance for the participants to meet and discuss further collaboration, in terms of research and events, as well as be a practical session for ‘how to engage with and influence policy’.

If you have experience of using your research to engage with practitioners and policy-makers, or if you are a non-academic user of academic research, and wish to attend as a speaker, or have any other queires,  please contact Dr Liam McCarthy-Cotter (liam.mccarthy-cotter@ntu.ac.uk).
