Upcoming summer schools/training events for evidence into policy?

Upcoming summer schools/training events for evidence into policy?

Hi there, I was just wondering if anyone knew of any good training events or upcoming summer schools that might be taking place in 2020/2021, or any events that occur annually that are good to go to? For researchers interested in learning more about this space? I saw a summer school advertised for 2018 and 2017 so just wondering. Apologies if this information is already somewhere obvious and if this is not the place to ask! Thank you!

Dear Elaine,

Thank you very much for your question. We are just about to launch the formal call for applicants for our next Evidence and Policy School in the field of Disaster Risk Management. It is scheduled for January, 2020. The call will be published in the coming two weeks, including on this space. Additional events are in the making, but it is yet to early to confirm time and place.

Best regards,

Lene Topp, JRC

Hi Lene, thanks so much for this. The focus on disaster risk management seems like it might be a little outside my topic area i.e. public health research. Are there plans to do another summer school that would be either more generic than risk management or more relevant to health? Or do you know of other similar events? Thanks so much for the information. 

Best wishes

Elaine

Hi Elaine,

You might find our Summer School "European Policy Communications in the Digital Era" interesting as well:

This is the third edition of our Summer School. Maybe it's the one you saw advertised here before?  

Feel free to write me if you have any questions! 

Kind regards,

Jakov
