Applications are now open for a workshop for European Early Career Researchers on how to work effectively at the Science-Policy-Society interface. The workshop is being organised jointly by NIECS, the European EKLIPSE project and the MarCons Cost Action. Due to the practical nature of the workshop and to ensure good discussions and interactions, only 25 participants will be accepted. The event will run from 17-20 June 2018.
Lecturers will enable workshop participants to develop a strong theoretical and applied understanding of the science-policy-society interface as it relates to the management of coastal and marine resources in Europe and elsewhere. Participants will also have the opportunity to interact and learn from local policy-makers and managers to gain firsthand insights into the world of policy and decision-making, and ways to influence decision-making processes.
