Description: 

Despite widespread efforts to improve the integration of marine science into policy and practice around the world, the practicalities of how to successfully achieve this remains elusive to many environmental scientists. This is particularly true for early career researchers (ECRs). Evidence indicates that while influencing policy is an important goal for many ECRs, they often lack the skills to understand the complexities of policy processes, or are inadequately trained in how engage with decision-makers.

To this end, the Network of Early Career Scientists of the Integrated Marine Biosphere Research (IMBeR) project, together with the EU project EKLIPSE, is holding a workshop to equip EU-based early career marine scientists with the practical knowledge, skills and tools that are needed to operate more effectively at the science-policy-society interface.
