Communicating Science to Policymakers Workshop in Kampala 

Applications are invited from parliamentary staff (researchers, librarians, clerks) who regularly handle science related issues.

Candidates do not need to have scientific qualifications, or to work exclusively on science and technology issues.

To provide an introduction to and basic training in some of these skills the UK Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (UKPOST), the African Technology Policy Studies Network (ATPS), and Science and Development Network (SciDev.Net) are pleased to announce a five-day course on “communicating science to policymakers” in Kampala during the week starting on the 22nd of September.

Applications are invited from parliamentary staff whose work includes the provision of advice and information to Parliamentarians on science, technologies and innovations for development issues.

Suitable applicants include researchers and librarians within parliamentary libraries and clerks to committees dealing with science and technology or related subjects.

Candidates do not need to have scientific qualifications, or to work exclusively on science and technology issues.

The primary focus will be to help participants develop skills required to effectively communicate scientific and technical information to policymakers in forms that are readily accessible and easily understood.
