Science for Policy: What is it and how can scientists become involved in policy processes?
Convener: Chloe Hill 
Thu, 12 Apr, 13:30–15:00 / Room -2.91
Add this session to your Personal programme

Communicating your research with policymakers can not only improve the policy making process but also expand the impact of your scientific research and provide you with new research and career opportunities. To ensure that your efforts to share your research with policymakers are effective, it is important to know when and how to communicate before engaging with science for policy.

Part 1: will focus on basic science for policy and communication techniques that can be used to engage policymakers. It will be of particular interest to anyone who wants to make their research more policy relevant and learn more about science-policy.

Part 2: will include invited speakers who will outline specific EU processes and initiatives and explain how scientists can become involved with them.

This session is open to all EGU General Assembly participants and is relevant for all divisions.
