The workshop is designed to give researchers knowledge and skills to maximise the impact of their research. The workshop, through a seminar, case studies and group discussion, will cover:

How is policy developed?

There are a number on theories on how policy development occurs and understanding these theories helps us to be policy entrepreneurs. Theories that will be explored are Kingdon’s Policy Window Theory; Weiss’s Ideology, Interests and Information theory and Lindblom’s Incrementalism Theory.

What is the role of the researcher?

There are a number of players in research translation. These are the researcher, knowledge broker, advocate and decision makers. What is the role of each of these players and what role can the researcher take in supporting research translation?

What are the tangible things that researchers can do?

There are a number of actions that researchers can take to close the research-policy translation gap. These actions include engaging in policy processes (submissions, engagement in consultations), communications activities (media releases, opinion pieces, social media, blog posts), advocacy actions (alliances, meetings and events with decision makers) and repurposing information (summary documents, infographics, videos).
