Course Detail

RS418 - Introduction to engaging with policymakers

In this workshop we discuss how engagement with policy makers can serve as effective means to disseminate your research while helping to inform public policy.

During this session we will discuss several examples of good practice from QMUL and UK researchers who worked in conjunction with policy makers to not only engage with that sector and keep them informed of how public funds are being appropriated, but have also had them inform and contribute to their research process.

Finally, we will also discuss practical and logistical elements in planning and running the events which will help to provide you with evidence and potential metrics as to how to measure the impact of your work with policy makers, and the means to explore and exploit that information.


By the end of this course, participants should be able to:

  • Understand how engaging with policy makers fits into the landscape of public engagement
  • Good practice in the area both within QMUL and nationwide
  • Become more acquainted with the relevant tools and techniques to maximise the impact of your engagement with policy makers
  • Have gained Insight on how to evidence your engagement with policy makers, and potential aims and metrics
