Getting science into policy in international development: faults on both sides?

Prof Chris Whitty - 18th November 

There are barriers to getting science into policy, and these include both problems of reception in government, but also supply and synthesis from the scientific community.  Chris Whitty has witnessed these processes as Chief Scientific Advisor and Director Research & Evidence to the Department for International Development (DFID). Now his term has come to a close he joins us at UCL to reflect on his experiences.
