Welcome to the Research-to-Policy Program Team site!
As a land-grant university institution, the University of California Division of Agriculture and Natural Resources (UC ANR). has a long history of conducting research across the campus-county network that supports policy relationships at multiple scales: local, regional, statewide, and beyond.
The aim of the Research-to-Policy Program Team is to provide a forum for cross-disciplinary dialog and training opportunities on translating research to policy, and on how UC ANR can continue to strategically improve efforts in this area. This team also provides an avenue to increase connections between the relevant policy work already taking place within Cooperative Extension and the UC campuses.
The Program Team was formed in April 2016 and is co-led by:
- Clare Gupta | UC Cooperative Extension, UC Davis Department of Human Ecology
- Leslie Roche | UC Cooperative Extension, UC Davis Department of Plant Sciences
