Research At Work 4: Your Place at the Science-Policy Interface

  • This event has passed.

June 23 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm EDT

Have you ever wondered how your research and experience can be put to work to encourage change? Are you curious about where you may fit into the science-policy interface?

The immense challenges we face in society can only be solved with the evidence provided by science. It is critical that science trainees and experts like you engage with the issues and get involved! While moving between the academic and policy worlds can seem daunting, our Research At Work series will introduce you to relevant topics and give you the tools to start on this exciting and worthwhile journey!

So, do you want to know more about how researchers can (and do) affect policy? Are you curious about a career in government or science advocacy? Are you passionate about educating the public about important topics in science?

The Toronto Science Policy Network (TSPN) invites you to join us for Research At Work, a workshop and networking series designed to teach you about the basics of science policy and connect you with experts engaged in this space in different ways. The series consists of three workshops and a networking event (all dates/times listed in EDT).

Summary

Research At Work 4 presents an opportunity to connect with individual mentors and dive deeper into the topics we discussed in the previous three sessions. This networking event will feature many of the workshop experts as well as some additional special guests and TSPN alumni. We will announce a full list of network event participants and their bios closer to the event. We will also provide an opportunity at this time for you to indicate your preferred Research At Work mentors for the event.
