The in-service training will bring together people working on agricultural, natural resources and food issues and focus on how to use research to effectively engage in public policy. The following are some highlights:
- Two leading, diverse experts in the role of science in policymaking will provide keynote presentations.
- A science panel comprised of UC researchers who have successfully engaged in the public policy arena will share “lessons learned.”
- A policy panel comprised of state agency and Senate/Assembly members will discuss how they use research.
- Workshop modules on UC policy engagement, science communication and policymaking will be presented.
The training modules will enable participants to build a toolkit for successful policy engagement that incorporates both technical skills as well as analytical frameworks.
