A stakeholder mapping exercise conducted in March 2020 by the Applying Research to Policy and Practice for Health (ARCH) programme at the Global Health Network (TGHN) highlighted the role of science communication as a crucial driver of research uptake. Different stakeholders within the research uptake cycle, such as researchers, journalists, policy makers, and advocacy organisations, were identified as groups that shape how scientific results are communicated, interpreted, and taken up into policy and practice.
In this three-part workshop series, we are working in partnership with inspiring experts to present the “Communicating Science to Facilitate the Uptake of Research Findings into Policy and Practice” workshop, where speakers will share their skills and experiences in communicating scientific information. Certificates of attendance will be issued.
