Launch of first University of York Policy Brief Pilot

Posted on 8 January 2021

In December 2020 we launched the first University of York Policy Brief Pilot to help support researchers across the University who were looking to move their research into the policy space.

The Pilot will consist of two interactive workshops led by Kate Ravillious, Freelance Science Journalist and Chris Stewart, Freelance Science Communicator and Trainer, and will lead our researchers through the techniques and steps required to create a thought-provoking, evidence-led brief. These briefs will be used to inform and influence policy-makers in specific areas where there are existing calls for evidence or a need for change.
