We have limited spaces available for the Engaging with Public Policy training session, organised by the RISCS Policy Adviser – Flo Greatrix.

Date: Thursday 15th October 2020. 

Time: 11:00 – 16:00 (including a break for lunch).   

The “Engaging with Public Policy” session was developed by UCL STEaPP’s Policy Impact Unit in collaboration with Dr Ine Steenmans (UCL STEaPP) and is designed to:  

  • provide an introduction to policy engagement for researchers who hold an interest in undertaking knowledge exchange with policy makers but have limited experience of doing so;  
  • give participants a sense of what’s involved in effective policy engagement and the confidence to craft and execute a policy engagement strategy.   

The session will feature presentations from external speakers from the policy community as well as group activities to bring the material to life and help you to begin crafting your own engagement plans. 

We are lucky to have two excellent speakers from Government joining the session. They will share their experiences of working in policy and provide tips for best-practice when doing your own engagement. There will be an opportunity for Q&A. The speakers are:

  • Emma Green, Deputy Director, Cyber Security, DCMS; and 
  • Steve Bell, Lead of the Cyber Protect and Victim Support Policy team, Home Office.  

The session is primarily targeted towards early career researchers, but all are welcome to attend. Spaces are limited for this session and ECRs will be prioritised, but if demand is high we will seek to run a second session later in the autumn. 

If you would like to attend, please email Flo no later than Monday 12th October to confirm your place and receive the joining instructions.
