Science & Technology Australia, in partnership with Crawford School of Public Policy at the Australian National University, invites registrations for a one-day conference to enable policymakers and scientists to achieve better public policy outcomes.
Science meets Policymakers will bring together researchers from a range of disciplines and policymakers from various government departments to examine the intersection between the evidence base and policy development.
Note: Registration for Science meets Policymakers (not to be confused with Science meets Parliament in late March 2015) is open to all and there are no restrictions on the number of registrations from individual organisations.
Participants in the event will include policymakers, parliamentarians, academics, practising scientists, and representatives from scientific societies and industries employing scientists.
Confirmed speakers include:
- Dr Michael Keating AC, FASSA, FIPAA
- Professor Brian Schmidt AC
- Professor Hugh White AO
- Professor Tom Kompas
- Professor Bruce Chapman
- Dr Subho Banerjee
- Anne-Marie Lansdown
Wednesday, 11 February 2015, 9am–5pm
