Training for ESRC Impact Acceleration Awards

11 November 2015

The next instalment of the ESRC’s Impact Acceleration Account training programme takes place next Wednesday on Research Impact and the Welsh Government. These lunchtime workshops will give a brief overview of how to influence policy with research findings.


This will include a briefing on the structure of the Welsh Government, its policy development mechanisms and opportunities to input your research and expertise into the Welsh Government’s work, both through reactive tenders and proactive means.


The workshop will involve a buffet lunch and a presentation from Joann Corke of the Welsh Government, as well as a case study from Dr Peter Mackie, School of Planning and Geography, on how he has worked with Welsh Government. There will also be ample time for Q&A and discussion. The workshop will be held from 12.00-2pm in Committee Room 1 in the Glamorgan Building, Wednesday 18th November.
