4th December 2015 @ 9:00 am - 5:00 pmFree
A Professional Development Policy Workshop for early-career civil servants and researchers
4 December 2015 (9am – 5pm), the Moller Centre, Cambridge
You are invited to attend a Professional Development Policy Workshop for early-career civil servants and researchers to take place on 4 December in Cambridge. The workshop has been organised by the Centre for Science and Policy with support from the Department for Transport and the ESRC Doctoral Training Centre at Cambridge.
The purpose of the workshop is to introduce early-career civil servants and researchers to the role of evidence and analysis in policy making through a series of panel discussions and worked examples. The workshop will aim to provide attendees with a better understanding of the relationship between research and policy, in particular, the role of evidence and expertise in effective policy making in transport, health and well-being.
Speakers from both academia and government will present examples of how research has contributed to policy making – what worked well and how they dealt with any technical, moral and ethical issues. Presenters will offer advice on how early-career policy makers and researchers might best engage to improve the exchange of ideas and practices.
This workshop is designed for early-career researchers (PhD students and Post docs) across a range of disciplines including those who have an interest in behaviour, health & well-being, the environment and transport planning methods.
