The fourteenth Policy Leaders Fellowship Roundtable will take place at Trinity College Cambridge on 12 May 2017, chaired by Lord Wilson of Dinton, former UK Cabinet Secretary.
The Policy Leaders Fellowship brings together the most senior members of CSaP's network of policy professionals to form a select group which meets, together with leading researchers from the University and other institutions, to share insights into the development of open and evidence-based policy making. In line with the objectives of the Civil Service Reform Plan, it promotes the value of evidence, and progresses the move towards open policy making by opening up new ways of thinking and fresh perspectives; exercising “open minds” at the top of the policy making process; exploring new models for implementation; and creating engagement between policy, expertise and delivery.
The subject for discussion on 12 May will be “advances in genetic technologies”. The agenda for the meeting will be as at previous roundtable meetings of the Fellowship: each of the Fellows will be asked to summarise in two minutes what questions are of interest to him or her within the nominated topic, and the academics will then be asked to speak for five minutes each on the relevance of their research.
