FNR training for researchers: how to explain your research to politicians

How to explain your research to politicians: Register now to attend the FNR’s training for researchers, either on 29 April or 30 April 2024 in Belval (in-person only).

About the training

Do you believe that your scientific research and expertise can help authorities and associations? Then you have to understand these audiences to make sure that your knowledge reaches them and will be understood.

This workshop provides you with the tools to ensure that your messages can be integrated into the decision-making processes. In particular, it will show you how policy briefs can be used to summarize expert knowledge compactly. You will learn the golden rules of communicating expert advice, discuss concrete examples and do hands-on exercises to summarize your research.

The Luxembourg parliament’s Scientific Unit, which brings scientific evidence to politicians, will also present their work during the workshop.

The places for this training are limited and will be distributed on a first come, first served basis (priority will be given to the participants of the Pairing Scheme as well as to the participants of the workshop “How to engage with policymakers”). Eligible are only researchers or science communicators working for a Luxembourgish research institution/association.
