Public Policy Engagement for Early Career Researchers

The University of Queensland's new Centre for Policy Futures is convening training workshops to help Early Career Researchers navigate Australia’s policy landscape. The Director of the Centre, Professor Karen Hussey, together with a team of UQ’s policy experts will:

  • Introduce you to Australia’s federal system and the respective roles and responsibilities of local, state/territory and federal governments.

  • Showcase a number of successful ‘science-to-policy’ case studies.

  • Explore what evidence-based policy means in practice.

  • Share experiences – good and bad – of interacting and engaging with the policy process, including insights into how you can connect your research with policy and program development.

  • Explain the difference between the political and policy spheres.

  • Explore the relationship between politics and science funding.
