Webinar: Introduction to Policy Impact 

Who should attend 

Academics and research staff interested in finding out how to influence policy makers based on their research findings, and APM staff whose roles include supporting academics on impact work. 

This webinar session is primarily intended for staff based in UNNC and UNM, but UK-based staff are also welcome to join. Note that the content of the session is built around UK policy processes, so it will be of particular interest to staff looking to have policy impact in the UK. However many of the core areas covered are applicable in other national policy contexts.
