PEPtalk Five Receiving and engaging with research evidence

Ever wondered what role research and evidence plays in policymaking? Have you considered how your research can help inform policy? Do you know how to engage with policymakers?

Please join us and our invited speakers as we explore how researchers and policymakers can work together to tackle pressing policy issues. The aim of the seminar series is to encourage academics to engage with the policy realm and equip them with practical skills needed for those engagements.

The value of bringing together researchers and policymakers, and the importance of evidence-based approach to policymaking, is now widely recognised. Thus far in the PEPtalk series we focused on experiences of academics engaging with the policy realm, and mechanisms and pathways that facilitate such engagements. But what happens next?

In this PEPtalk we will hear from two speakers who have experience of engaging with research evidence from their respective positions within the Scottish Government. How do they identify, receive and engage with research evidence in the policy development process?
