The Royal Society is offering a training scheme for scientists to gain insight in to how parliament and government work, and how you can use your research findings to inform policy making.
To take part in the scheme you will need to be able to travel to London for the Week in Westminster and be willing to arrange for your parliamentarian or civil servant pair to visit you at your research facility. The Royal Society will cover your travel and subsistence costs, including accommodation, for the Week in Westminster.
The Royal Society welcomes applications from scientists across all science, technology, engineering, medicine and mathematics (STEMM) disciplines working in academia or industry. To be eligible for the scheme applicants are required to have at least two years postdoctoral research experience or equivalent research experience in industry.
