As part of the Institute for Policy and Engagement’s “Nottingham Digitally Engaged 2020” fortnight, this webinar will hear from NGO and charity experts as well as academics on combining research and advocacy campaigns to achieve policy impact.
How can researchers collaborate with charities and NGOs when looking to achieve policy impact? Charities and think tanks often require an evidence base to support their policy recommendations. In this session we will look at ways to position research alongside established campaigns, whilst still maintaining the research’s integrity and fundamental findings.
Nottingham Digitally Engaged 2020
The Institute for Policy and Engagement presents a fortnight of online events designed to explore recent developments in both policy and public engagement. In a world increasingly connected through digital means this online version of the annual Nottingham Engaged Conference brings together a mix of internal and external expertise. Join us to discover new approaches, share your experiences, participate in debates and ensure you are aware of the factors impacting these fields. Topics to be included build on our past programmes and are delivered in the context of the UK’s departure from the EU, the global pandemic and a new age for digital engagement.
