PhD Course: From research to policy for sustainable development

In order for research to contribute to a more sustainable development, it is critical that research results reach out to a wide audience. The aim of this course is to enhance the participants’ understanding of research-policy linkages and to increase their capabilities to communicate their research findings to different stakeholders, in order to create impact for sustainable development.

The course combines theoretical discussions, about factors facilitating or hampering utilization of research findings in policy making processes, with practical exercises.

Course themes included are:
1. Research and Policy Linkages: what can we learn from history?
2. The role of research and researchers: motivation to engage?
3. Understanding the policy landscape
4. Models and strategies for policy engagement
5. Tools for engagement: science communication in practice
The course has been developed by researchers and policy experts at the Centre for Environment and Sustainability (GMV) in Gothenburg.

The course is offered by Chalmers, Generic and transferable skills. PhD students from any university can apply and students from Chalmers have reserved 17 seats. More information
