Science-policy researchers’ gathering: From co-production to new perspectives

What is the state of the science-policy interaction research in Finland and where is it heading?

Welcome to the Science-Policy Interaction Researchers’ Gathering on Thursday 27th of April, hosted by the Finnish Academy of Science and Letters. This event offers a platform for researchers to share insights on the current landscape of science-policy interaction research in Finland, including the latest research, state of literature and new perspectives.

Our aim is to facilitate discussions and networking among attendees, and to inspire participants to approach their work in new ways. The gathering will feature a presentation on a doctoral dissertation exploring this topic, followed by a panel discussion with experts from the field. We also invite you to analyse and challenge our practices in the nexus of research and policymaking.
