Science communication via briefing notes, 2019

Science should provide the foundation for evidence-informed decision-making. However, in practice, connecting science with decision-makers isn’t always easy.

One challenge that can create gaps in this process is that science and policy are often communicated in very different manners. When science is not communicated in a way that makes it accessible to policy-makers, it might get lost in translation. Informed by recent E4D research on how parliamentarians find and use information,  this workshop will provide you with skills to communicate your science to government decision-makers in the form of a briefing note. Through hands on practice, you’ll learn how to frame your work in a way that is familiar and useful to policy makers, how to create impactful summaries of your research, and how to clearly articulate the policy impacts of science.
