Event description
What do we know about advising policy makers? Researching legislative scientific advice with Dr Chris Tyler

About this Event

Date: Wednesday, May 6th 2020, 6-7pm with drinks and networking from 7 - 7:30

Dr Chris Tyler, director of Research and Policy at the UCL Department of Science, Technology, Engineering and Public Policy (STEaPP) and former director of the UK’s Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) will be speaking about his research on how to provide science advice to legislatures. Even though scientific information is widely acknowledged as valuable for decision-making in many policy domains, little is known about how such advice should be delivered. In his recent publication (http://dx.doi.org/10.1057/s41599-019-0318-6), academics, science advisors and policy makers rank the most pressing research questions on legislative science advice - Environment and health being of the highest priority.

This event is free and open to all students, researchers, and staff of the University of Cambridge. The Cambridge University Science & Policy Exchange (CUSPE) particularly recommends this event within its lecture series to graduate, postgraduate, post-doctoral and early career researchers.
