Learning Event: Heritage and Policy

6 December — 6 December 2019
09:30 — 16:30
University of Leeds

In collaboration with Praxis: Arts and Humanities for Global Development, we have co-organised this 1-day workshop which aims to explore the intersections and relevance of GCRF heritage research for public policy, including ways of ‘bringing learning back to the UK’, by providing participants with a useful guide and practical tips on how to engage with the policy process. This is a fantastic opportunity for those wanting to translate research findings into policy impact but are unsure how to do so.

The areas the workshop will be focusing on specifically are: introducing the policy process and stages of advocacy, including open calls for evidence and responding to them, facilitating change through bridging heritage research with evidence-based policy, and suitable ways of engaging with policymakers.

Keynote speakers include: Rosie Weetch (Policy Advisor, Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport), Professor Andy Gouldson (Director of Policy@Leeds), and Professor Ian Baxter (Director of Scottish Confucius Institute for Business & Communication).

Kindly note, for our Learning Events we are only able to cover rail travel for up to 15 UK based delegates. This is at the request of AHRC to build and support a cohort of UK researchers able to respond to global challenges.
