Engaging with policymakers boosts the real-world impact of research by creating public policy change for the better. Providing policymakers with clear and understandable scientific research encourages evidence-based decision making. The broad range of research carried out at WIN has wide implications across multiple policy remits, including science and technology, and healthcare.
These policy engagement pages showcase examples of successful policy engagement across WIN. They aim to inspire and encourage others to think about how they could increase the impact of their research through policy engagement or translational activities more broadly.
If you would like help in exploring how you could take part in policy engagement, or any other translational activities, please reach out to Jessica Walsh. Jess works across impact, policy and translation at WIN, including clinical study support, policy engagement and technology transfer and innovation. She would be very happy to help develop your ideas!
