Brokering knowledge: Connecting research, policy and practice

This session of the Engaging Scotland 2011 Conference will map key networks in Scotland and explore the challenges of connecting research, policy and practice.
Firstly, Oliver Escobar (Public Policy Network) will briefly introduce some current knowledge & policy platforms. This will be followed up by an on-stage interview with Dr Elisabeth Innes (Principal Scientist and Director of Communications, Moredun Research Institute) and Graeme Cook (Principal Researcher, Scottish Parliament Information Centre), who will share their experiences as practitioners in the field. Finally, the conversation will be open to the audience, before concluding with an invitation to propose ideas for spin-off activities from this session.
All in all, the encounter aims to initiate a practice-led dialogue about the work of creating interfaces between research and policy in Scotland.
