SRHE hosts the UK Parliament’s Knowledge Exchange Unit (KEU) and Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST)

The Knowledge Exchange Unit (KEU) works with higher education and beyond to support the exchange of information and expertise between researchers and the UK Parliament. This session, facilitated by Natasha Mutebi (Social Science Adviser, Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology (POST)), aims to brief attendees on how to understand and engage with policy. It will also provide insights into the work POST undertakes to bridge gaps between research and policy, and how researchers can contribute to this work.

This session is open to researchers from all career stages across the humanities and social scientists. To find out more about the Knowledge Exchange Unit and access further resources, please click here.

Programme

The session is structured into two parts:

  1. Engaging with policy

This section will include information on select committees, REF-able impact, and KEU’s mobilisers network.

  1. POST’s key messages
