Research, Impact and the UK Parliament – Funded training in Bristol

26 January 2017

How can your research be heard in Parliament? This Houses of Parliament Universities Programme training session comes to Bristol on 1st March 2017.

The UK Parliament uses research and academic knowledge to inform scrutiny and legislation.

Academics can help to ensure that the decisions that affect people’s lives are taken with the best available evidence.

This interactive event will cover the following areas, with lots of opportunities for questions:

  • The difference between the UK Parliament and UK Government
  • How the UK Parliament uses research
  • Contacting MPs and members of the House of Lords
  • Working with Select Committees

Using Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology research into the 2014 REF case studies, this event will also discuss how academics are having impact in Parliament and give practical advice and information about how to get involved.

The event includes lunch and a chance to network following the training.
