SciComm Focus | Science-Based Policy Advice - A Glimpse Behind the Scenes

An offer by the Human Resources Development

This is the first of three sessions of a lecture series about important aspects of scientific policy advice. In this session you will receive a glimpse behind the scenes of policy advice. Get to know practical examples and different models, e.g. as a sideline to an academic career vs. full-time. After the presentation we look forward to an active exchange between the participants and the trainer in the Q&A session.

The trainer, Dr. Robert Peters, has been working at the Institute for Innovation and Technology (iit) since 2019 as an expert for foresight and technology assessment. In this role, he leads study and consulting projects for federal and state ministries, business associations, and civil society organizations. Besides he is also a freelance moderator, speaker and author.
