Event description

Description

This event launches a new report into how research is conceived and used within the UK Parliament. The report is based on a two-year study into how different people understand and use research across parliament, and the key routes with which research gets into it. It is the result of a partnership between UCL's Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP), the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST).




The keynote speech will be given by Professor Sir Mark Walport, Chief Executive, UKRI, with an introduction from Professor Tony McEnery, Director of Research, Economic and Social Research Council, report findings from lead author Dr Caroline Kenny, Head of Social Sciences, POST, and discussion with The Rt Hon. The Lord David Willets, Professor Shamit Saggar, University of Essex and Paul Evans, Clerk of Committees, House of Commons.

The event is free and open to MPs, Peers, Parliamentary staff, and interested members of the public, but Eventbrite registration is required for entry. Further information can be found on POST's website. If you require any accessibility assistance, contact us directly.

Breakfast will be provided at 8:30 AM, and talks will begin at 9:00 AM.

**Please note, if you are not a parliamentary passholder, you will have to pass through airport-style security at the Cromwell Green entrance to the Palace. Please bring photo ID, as well as a copy of this invitation.
