Science-Policy Workshop

Date/Time: Tuesday 9 September 2014

Following the successful format of last year’s science-policy workshop, speakers and guests will engage in a ‘world-café’ with participants in an interactive workshop. Of particular interest is the two-way nature of the knowledge exchange processes and how this can lead to enhanced research outputs, more evidence-based practice and policy and ideally to transformation in society. We’re looking forward to an interesting session with stimulating discussions, an opportunity to meet face-to-face with experts from policy and science communication, as well as networking among colleagues.

For better planning we require registration. Both experienced participants als well as newcomers to the field very welcome! Language will be a mix of English and German as applicable.
