News in Professional Development Policy Workshops for Research, evidence and policy
On 3 June, CSaP partnered with the Cambridge NanoDTC and the Royal Society of Chemistry to host a career development day for PhD students interested in nanotechnology policy.
Communicate, join networks, develop lasting relationships and build trust: these were just some of the recommendations put forward by a distinguished line up of computer scientists and policy makers at the CSaP Professional Development Policy Workshop for early-career technology researchers on 31 October.
In December, CSaP and the Engineering Department at the University of Cambridge co-hosted a Professional Development Policy Seminar for early-career engineers. Co-sponsored by the IET, 32 researchers from 7 universities heard from engineering experts and policy professionals on the opportunities and realities of engaging with policy. For Marcus Pelenu, a PhD student at the Centre for Sustainable Development, Department of Engineering, this seminar resulted in a work placement in the Cabinet Office.
