Science to Policy: Taking Credit - Writing and Reviewing Policy Effort in the Performance Review Process

The Research to Policy working group will present our white paper developed to support and incentivize specialists and advisors to articulate the policy components of their work, guide reviewers to evaluate and appropriately assign credit to policy-relevant work, and provide ANR leadership and communications experts easily identifiable instances of impactful policy work for internal and external audiences and stakeholders. Dr. Dave Campbell will present examples of ANR’s efforts within the steps of the policy process, supported by a panel of Advisors and Specialists who will deliver specific programmatic examples of their challenges and successes.  Finally, there will be a brief introduction on how policy efforts might be incorporated into ANR’s Project Board.
