About this Event

Joint UKCRC/CPHC/UKRI/BCS Workshop on Policy Engagement

Given the increasing links between research funding and government policy, it is ever more important that the Computing Science Research and Education Communities engage with Westminster and regional governments. This morning’s event will explain the links between policy and UKRI funding, it will provide first-hand experience of engagement from Chief Scientific Advisors and it will provide a practical exercise in responding to requests for input in parliamentary and policy consultations.
