Working to make government more effective


Academic researchers

We offer workshops and written resources to help academics feed their research and expertise into the policymaking process.

We believe that policy makers achieve the best results when they have access to expertise and evidence from a range of disciplines. The IfG Academy offers workshops and written resources with practical guidance and support for academics on the best ways to feed their research and expertise into the policy making process.

Our workshops on engaging with policy makers cover how government and policy making work, routes to engagement, and how to communicate with policy audiences. Workshops are flexible in length and format, and can be aligned with particular priorities or policy areas. We provide workshops for research councils, universities and other academic bodies, and partner with the Universities Policy Engagement Network to promote the use of evidence in policy making.
