Research Impact and Political Debate
Mon 12 December 2016, 13:30 – 16:00 GMT
Policy is the buzzword of REF impact, but there is much conceptual impact in politics outside the traditional policy mechanisms, including the generation of manifesto commitments, holding the government to account through PMQs and other routes such as social and traditional media, influencing political debate in the broadest sense. Join Baroness Jenny Randerson and a host of senior researchers with experience of generating political debate to discuss the opportunities for debate in the political sphere, and learn from peers about challenges and successes of generating conceptual impact in politics.
Includes tea and coffee and informal networking opportunity
Speakers: Baroness Jenny Randerson, House of Lords; Professor Emma Renold, School of Social Sciences, Cardiff University; More TBC
