Organized by: Canadian Science Policy Centre, Jeff Kinder and Silke Nebel 

Curious about science policy? Whether trying to make a difference or demonstrating impact to funders, the
need to engage effectively with policy- makers is increasingly part of the research endeavor. But even many of the most experienced research faculty balk at the barriers to bringing their research to the decision-table. For early career researchers and graduate students, the barriers are even higher – as are the rewards.

This workshop will provide a gateway into the world of science policy. You will gain an understanding of what science policy is and how it works through an afternoon of interactive exercises and discussion. We welcome active participants from all backgrounds, whether in the sciences, engineering, public policy and
administration, business, communications, arts or something else entirely. With an interest in science policy, this workshop is the place to share and expand knowledge, develop skills, and start building a network of interesting people in the world of science policy.
