Policy Engagement and Impact

Hosted by UQ, QUT, and Griffith University Queensland Conversations offer policy-makers and ministers private meetings with experts to learn more about a topic and the issues surrounding it.
The Policy Engagement Program invites and engages experts on policy-priority topics over roundtable discussions to guide the development of the Centre’s 'Policy Futures' think piece series and Policy Takeaways series. The think pieces are designed to unpack complex topics for policy makers and regulators.
A partnership with the Winston Churchill Trust, the Policy Impact Program curates a selection of ideas from Churchill Fellows that have the potential to shape best practice and policy reform on a variety of relevant and contemporary issues facing Australia. The culmination of the program is its flagship publication – Policy Futures: A Reform Agenda.
The GRiPP workshop provides an overview of Australia’s federal system, the respective roles of different levels of governments and insights into what shapes domestic agenda setting and policy making.
In this workshop that is offered to HDR students through the Graduate School, researchers learn how to produce policy-relevant research findings and recommendations. This workshop is run annually; it was last offered on July 11 2022, and will be scheduled again for 2023.
