11 May 2016, Great Hall, Trent Building 1200-1630
On May 11th, together with the Governance and Public Policy RPA, we held the inaugural Routes to Policy Impact Conference. Chaired by Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research and Knowledge Exchange, Dame Jessica Corner, the day featured a speech from Rt. Hon. Alan Johnson MP, and external speakers including Government Office for Science, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, the Kings Policy Institute, Shelter and CentreForum.
The conference aimed to highlight to the 150 staff present why public policy impact matters to research academics and how The University of Nottingham can help academics engage with national policymakers.
New resources from this conference, including Routes to Policy Impact: A Practical Guide for Academics and Researchers and 'Pecha Kucha' style presentations from University of Nottingham academics on their personal 'routes to policy impact' are available on our workspace page
