BIOS² Workshop: Bridging the Science-Policy Void

Do you think science should influence policy? Do you wonder how to improve evidence-based decision making? Do you have a particular issue that you would like to bring to the attention of decision makers?

Sign up for an online workshop on Communicating science to policy makers hosted by Pr. Sarah P. Otto (UBC). This online training will be conducted in 4*90-minute sessions every Monday of March stating on March 7, 2022.

Participants will learn how to present science in a more impactful way, how to prepare a brief, and will be encouraged to meet with a decision maker to discuss the issue raised in their policy brief. 

The training session will be presented by Sally Otto, professor in the Department of Zoology at the University of British Columbia and BIOS² co-PI. Pr. Sarah P. Otto has strong expertise on quantitative analysis and mathematical modeling for biologists, and a lot of experience communicating theory to policy decision makers.

The workshop will be held in English on March 7, 14, 21 and 28 at 8:30 – 10 am Pacific time / 9:30 – 11 am Mountain time / 11:30 am – 1 pm Eastern time.
