As part of its commitment to recruiting, developing and supporting early career researchers, Queen’s University established the Fellowship Academy in January 2020. This initiative offers a comprehensive range of developmental opportunities to support these future research leaders and influencers with their professional, academic and personal development and progression, including a hosted annual event. This year’s event is focused on the theme of ‘Influencing and Impacting Policy’.
Professor Graeme Reid, Professor of Science and Research Policy, University College London, will deliver a keynote address on Academic Research and Public Policy, with Professor Emma Flynn, Pro-Vice Chancellor Research & Enterprise hosting the event. Further contributors include Queen’s academics, Professor Laura Lundy and Professor Maria Lohan, presenting on their own personal perspectives and experiences of applying their research to influence policy. The event concludes with a roundtable discussion on the importance of research in influencing policy and policy makers, chaired by Academy Fellow, Dr Clara Fischer.
