Event Details

Successful researchers are ones who not only excel at original scholarship, but also contribute to policy-making and political debate. That, at least, is what governments increasingly expect of the research community, under the banner of ‘creating social and economic impact’. To consider and debate how this works in practice, we have the pleasure of hosting Professor Jim Skea CBE as guest speaker of this year’s annual lecture. Jim Skea will explain how we can make the science-policy interface work, based on his extensive experience of advising both the UK government and the United Nations on one of the most pressing if complex policy issues of the 21st century: global climate change. The talk will explore how different modes of engagement – from statutory policy advice to informal policy deliberation – affect the relationship between researchers and the policy process. This is a unique opportunity to hear first-hand from a researcher who has successfully crossed the boundary with policy and politics.

The lecture and questions & answers session will be followed by a drinks reception. Doctoral researchers, supervisors and the wider Graduate School community are all cordially invited to join us for this special occasion.

The drinks reception will take place at 6:15pm in the Regent Street reception foyer.
