Time: 11:00:00 - 12:30:00

Have you ever wondered how research can inform policy decisions? Are you unsure of the best routes for engagement with public policy? Do you want to know more about when and how to communicate research to policymakers? Up Close and Policy sessions offer the chance to hear from UCL academics and policymakers on their experience of academic-policy engagement, the insights they have gained, and what they consider the key lessons for successful engagement. On 16 May, Up Close and Policy will bring together senior UCL academic Professor Susan Michie and external policymaker Andrew Black from the Department of Health to discuss their experience of academic-policy interaction. They’ll offer their views on the complexities of policy engagement and answer your questions on opportunities and pitfalls.
