Science meets Policymakers

Science meets Policymakers brings together researchers and practitioners from a range of science and technology disciplines with policymakers from across government departments and agencies - to make connections and examine the intersection between the evidence base and policy development.

In 2017, we hosted a range of influential speakers and held workshops between specific Departmental contacts and a range of scientists and technologists from across the country.

The event helped to increase understanding of the role science and technology does and should play in policy making, and built meaningful collaborative ties between scientists, technologists, and policymakers around topics of mutual interest and expertise.
