From research to policy for sustainable development
In order for research to contribute to a more sustainable development, it is critical that research results reach out to a wide audience. The aim of this course is to enhance the PhD students understanding of the research-policy linkages and to increase the capabilities of the PhD students to communicate their research findings to different stakeholders. The course combines theory about factors facilitating or hindering the uptake of research findings in policy making processes with practical exercises. The methodology is a mix of presentations, literature seminars and assignments. Guest lectures with senior researchers and policy experts with vast experiences from research-policy interaction play an important part in the course. Note: The course is planned to take place on campus in Gothenburg.
The course takes part 8-10 February and 15-17 March
Deadline to register 14 January.
