Cutting-edge communications for research and policy: Design-led communications

start date: October 17, 2017 end date: October 30, 2017

Effective communication is central to being a successful think tank or advocacy group. It is a critical part of shaping policy and practice. It ensures that research is relevant and helps evidence get to decision-makers when they need it, and how they need it.

Each unit in our long course, Cutting-edge communications for research and policy, has been specially crafted by our trainers to focus on a particular aspect of strategy, channels or MEL in think tank communications. Participants will walk away with a comprehensive set of resources to help them put their learning into practice.
