Register Now for March 30th Program - Policy Engagement Training for Researchers: How To Build Relationships For Long-term Impact
Doctoral students, post-docs, research associates and faculty are encouraged to apply for the Scholars Strategy Network’s Policy Engagement Workshop. There will be 30 available slots, and applications will be accepted until 8 am EST February 13th. Applicants will be notified of their admission status by Monday, February 19th.
Organized by the Scholars Strategy Network (SSN), in partnership with the William T. Grant Foundation, this interactive workshop provides researchers and data scientists the opportunity to learn best practices for developing reciprocal relationships with civic intermediaries and policymakers. In the pursuit of its mission to bridge the gap between universities and the policy process, the network has identified the knowledge and skills that researchers need to use their expertise more effectively in the policy realm. The centerpiece is an approach that emphasizes relationships and research-practice partnerships between academics and practitioners, rather than the traditional model of one-way information dissemination.
