David will explore how we might do academia differently to enhance the policy impact of our work. He will draw on a report on the role of research in the UK Parliament, co-authored with colleagues at the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology and UCL STEaPP, which gained insights from 157 MPs, Peers, and staff in Parliament. This report explored how individuals and groups in Parliament use research, and why particular types and sources of research are used more than others. Academic evidence was widely criticised for a number of reasons, including lack of timeliness, accessibility, and relevance, as well as its poor presentation. The talk will assess how academia can change to encourage the production of research which is more likely to influence policy David is a Lecturer in Geography at the University of East Anglia. He currently holds a Research Placement Fellowship at Defra and is seconded to the department for a day per week.
