In this first ECR-SIG webinar, Professor Di McIntyre will give a talk on some factors that influence the research to policy process, illustrated with a few examples of where research findings have impacted on policy. Practical tips on communicating research to policy makers in a way that enhances the possibility of research findings influencing policy will also be provided.
