New Series of Policy Briefs on the Science/Policy Interface

Posted by the ISSP on:

With support from a SSHRC Public Outreach grant, the ISSP has developped a new series of policy briefs for publication. The goal of this series is to mobilize academic research beyond the walls of universities and to engage public servants, working at the science/policy interface in Canada and abroad. Each brief has been designed to highlight themes and findings in academic literature for the purpose of synthesis, knowledge transfer, and discussion.

The series includes the following eight policy briefs and reports:

1. Researchers are from Mars; Policymakers are from Venus: Collaborators across the System by Matthew Gaudreau and Marc Saner

2. From Many to One: Integration of Knowledge and Values in Decision-making by Matthew Gaudreau and Marc Saner
