Forum policy seminar with attendees

The Forum organises internal seminars for Imperial researchers which focus on building political engagement expertise. 

We recommend you attend the sessions in order (level 1, 2 and 3). However we understand that some researchers have more knowledge and experience of engaging with policy than others, so you may feel it is appropriate to skip level 1 for the later seminars. If you have any questions about this, feel free to get in touch.

If you would like to attend please let us know.

Upcoming policy engagement seminars

Level 1: Introduction to policy engagement

In this introductory seminar, we will discuss the policy-making process, key decision-makers, how to influence them and how The Forum can help.

Regrettably, The Forum's policy engagement seminars are postponed until further notice due to COVID-19. The Forum will be in touch soon about online alternatives and future dates via our bulletin.

Level 2: Communicating your research

In this smaller group session we will look at best practice in drafting policy briefings and evidence submissions. Please bring along a one page draft, outlining your research, for a policy audience. Feel free to bring your lunch - tea and coffee will be provided.
