Science & Policy Exchange will be hosting a science advice workshop (#SPESciAdvice) on March 16th 2019 in Montreal, QC. The goal of this workshop will be to introduce early career scientists to real global science-policy issues and to guide them through various evidence-informed policy scenarios. This event aims to offer them an introduction and practical training to science advice to foster the next generation of science advisers.
As an entirely student-run organization, the central aim of Science & Policy Exchange is to bring a student voice to science policy matters at the territorial, provincial, federal, and international levels. To shed light on the role of students in science advice, we have organized a full day event in close collaboration with the Fonds de Recherche du Québec (FRQ) and the International Government Network for Science Advice (INGSA).
What's in it for me?
This is a great opportunity for students to learn about current issues in national and international science policy and meet with key leaders within the science policy community. Selected students and early career researchers will begin the day with an introduction and a simple case study. After a lunch break, participants will be presented with a second case study where they will develop their own science advice. Participants will also be asked to write short paragraphs their expectations before and describing their experience after the end of the workshop. These pieces will be combined into a report for the event that will be published and advertised to our stakeholders.
This is a unique opportunity to learn about science policy, gain practical experience, network with leaders in the field, and find out what opportunities are offered to foster the role of students in science policy.
