Impact Workshop: Engaging with Policy & Decision-makers

We have a few places left on the Research Impact workshop: Engaging with policy and decision-makers and so the Research and Enterprise Office (REO) would like to extend the invite to Postgraduate Researchers.

The event is free and the ESRC IAA project has sponsored it meaning refreshments and lunch is available for all attendees. It is scheduled for Thursday 23rd November in Reichel Hall, Bangor.

Please see the link to register and details of the external and internal speakers below.

The day has been designed to be interactive, as well as featuring speakers from both policy and academia.
