In line with UCL’s position as London’s Global University, UCL research and expertise informs policy-making across the globe. However, there are opportunities to enhance the visibility of this work, identify and share good practice across Faculties and explore the demand for central support for international public policy engagement. 

The workshops are open to all UCL staff members interested in growing their international policy engagement. There will be three separate 1h sessions on targeted groups of policy stakeholders. The sessions are intended to assess UCL academics’ aspirations and support needs for policy engagement with international policy-makers. The contributions to the workshops will inform a collaborative cross-institutional project led by UCL Global Engagement, the European Institute and UCL Public Policy to facilitate and grow UCL’s international policy engagement activities.
