A new webinar, taking place May 18th at 9-12 CET/SAST will discuss how policy briefs can be used as a device for science communication. Policy briefs can be an effective communication tool that make research results more accessible for decision-makers and a larger audience. Policy briefs inform decision-makers on key research results and provide them with specific recommendations for environmental policies.

In this presentation, policy briefs will be introduced as a communication tool, highlighting the importance of its potential to transfer scientific research results to larger audiences and to decision-makers in particular. The presentation will further cover the structure, as well as several crucial principles for design and dissemination. Early drafts written by researchers will be compared with the final edited Policy Briefs. In this presentation, the ZMT Policy Brief Series published by The Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT) will be used as a specific example.

Instructor | Rebecca Lahl, Head of Office for Knowledge Exchange (OKE) at Leibniz Centre for Tropical Marine Research (ZMT).
