As the amount of information needed to make an informed decision that adequately considers policy options increases, so too does the need for scientific evidence and those who are able to communicate it accurately and concisely. This role, between science and policy, is becoming increasingly recognised as a necessary profession with the number of knowledge brokers and those working on the interface expanding.

But what does a career in between science and policy look like? What types of positions exist and what skills do professionals who work on the science-policy interface need? Join us in this session to meet those working across the science-policy spectrum, learn about how they developed the necessary skills, and find out what their tips are for those who want to take the next step in their own career!
