Overview of the Day

Room D2:07   11.15am
During the morning session Rhiannon, will give an introduction to the policy making landscape at Westminster, outlining how to bring your research to the attention of relevant policy makers and committees. This will be an invaluable session as you will be guided through the intricacies of our national and regional government policy making structures. This will be an informal session and colleagues are encouraged to ask questions and engage in discussion.

Room D2:07 and D2:02   2.00pm
During the afternoon, depending on numbers, two smaller sessions will take place concurrently. Academic colleagues will have the opportunity to ‘pitch’ their research, and the potential impact resulting from it, to the policy experts for feedback and advice.
Colleagues are asked to spend no more than two minutes ‘pitching’ their research and powerpoint slides will not be required.
Colleagues who do not wish to ‘pitch’ are also encouraged to attend and engage in the informal discussions.

We are fortunate to have such key individuals delivering these sessions and colleagues are strongly encouraged to take advantage of this valuable opportunity.

*IMPORTANT – Please indicate whether or not you intend to ‘pitch’ your research by including ‘Yes’ or No’ in the “Special Requirement” box below.
 
We expect demand to be high so please register by Tuesday 5 February, after which the sessions will be opened up to colleagues from other colleges.
