The SMMR-Net are excited to host Jamie Gallagher for FREE this half day training on Policy Engagement for Researchers! 1-4pm Thursday 27th April March 2023 (online on zoom).

Researchers can provide essential information, direction and expertise to policy makers – but making your voice heard can be a challenge. Through this interactive workshop you will explore the legislative process and how you can work to influence both policy and policy makers.

At the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
