Academics and researchers with a basic knowledge of the principles of policy impact and who want to plan a specific policy impact initiative, and APM staff who support academic staff on impact. The session is especially suited to researchers who have a specific piece of research, either published or near publication, on which they wish to build policy impact activity.
This webinar session is primarily intended for staff based in UNNC and UNM, but UK-based staff are also welcome to join.

However many of the core areas covered are applicable in other national policy contexts.
