WANT TO INCREASE THE IMPACT OF YOUR RESEARCH?
Apply now for the Royal Society’s pairing scheme
Deadline 3rd April
Each year the Royal Society’s pairing scheme pairs 30 research scientists with UK parliamentarians and civil servants. By spending time together in Westminster and the researcher’s workplace, participants learn about each other’s work and gain a greater insight into how research findings can help inform policymaking. If you are selected to take part in the scheme you will have a chance to learn how parliament and government work and how you can feed in to the policymaking process.
The scheme begins with a ‘Week in Westminster’ in which you will meet your pair. Over the week you will spend two days shadowing them, and also take part in workshops and hear from invited speakers. Your pair will then visit you in your workplace to get an insight into the world of your research.
