About this Event

Welcome to the third annual policy impact and public engagement conference.

Brought to you by the University of Nottingham Institute for Policy and Engagement, the conference is aimed at researchers, academics and professional staff across all disciplines working in or supporting policy impact and public engagement. The day will offer a range of training options to suit all experience levels.

This year's theme of 'Celebrate and Aspire' aims to showcase some of the outstanding policy impact and public engagement that is happening across the University, and inspire you with new ideas from local and national experts.

Plenary speakers include Professor Shearer West and Amanda Horton-Mastin. Amanda is a Director at Collider Science and is responsible for Marketing, Communications and Fund Mobilisation at Girl Effect.

A mini Pecha Kucha showcase will see colleagues from across university share their stories of success about engaging with policymakers or members of the public.

The afternoon breakout sessions feature a range of workshops across key policy and public engagement topics including Policy 101, Inside the Policy Brain: who policy makers are and how to talk to them, Public Engagement 101, Creating a space for engagement.

The conference will also include the presentation of the inaugural Policy and Engagement Awards, which will celebrate both individual and team efforts in the policy and public engagement space. To nominate someone (or yourself) for one of the awards please visit our website. Nominations close on 23 August.

This event is free for academic and professional staff from the University of Nottingham. Please note, attendees will have the opportunity to choose their favourite workshops in late August.
