How Ottawa Works: Points of entry for research and evidence - Field visit
The Foundation appoints scholars and fellows not only for their academic achievements and their commitment to evidence, but also for their desire to communicate their findings in such a way as to be useful to policymakers, civil society, the media, and the private sector. This two/three-day field trip to Ottawa will explore ways of for academics to do just that. Join us on 6 and 7 February 2017 for discussions with Parliament Hill research units, public servants, members of parliament, senators, and civil society organizations on how these actors find it most useful to interact with academics, and ways to help them draw on researchers’ findings.
Please note that this event in strictly open to the Foundation's community members.
Registration in January.
