Webinar: Policy Work of Science Shops

Our friends at the InSPIRES EU project are hosting a webinar on Policy work of Science Shops on the 28th of September at 14h (CEST time).

One of the main challenges that Science Shops may face is to ensure its sustainability over the long term. A key strategy to achieve it can be making sure that policymakers such as funders, political representatives and senior university managers understand and appreciate how Science Shops could help them to deliver on their own relevant priorities. Policy development work can feel challenging for Science Shop practitioners, especially in the early stages of the work. However, the experience of longstanding Science Shops suggests that policy work is vital to long-term success.
