Getting Research into Policy and Practice (GRiPP)

The Centre for Policy Future’s highly-regarded Getting Research into Policy and Practice (GRiPP) training is designed to help researchers better understand and navigate Australia’s policy landscape.

View the agenda here.

The GRiPP training will help you to explore and understand:
  • The policy priorities of the 2023 federal government 
  • The respective roles and responsibilities of Australian federal and sub-national governments
  • The difference between the political and policy spheres
  • The relationship between politics and research funding
  • Ways to promote your research and engage with policy-makers
  • What evidence-based policy means in practice
  • Shared experiences of interacting and engaging with the policy process
  • A case study on policy development

Part of the HASS Faculty, the Centre for Policy Futures undertakes policy-relevant and rigorous research, builds capacity within the University by enhancing the ability of academics to engage with policymakers, and delivers research engagement programs for policymakers throughout Queensland, Australia and the Indo-Pacific region.

The workshop is facilitated by:
Associate Professor Pedro Fidelman Principal Research Fellow, Centre for Policy Futures. Pedro’s research focuses on environmental policy and governance with an emphasis on the role of institutions (e.g., regulations, norms, and decision-making processes) in addressing global environmental change. He is also interested in the process of policy making and associated social and political actors and contextual factors.
