Science into policy
This booklet is to help NERC staff and NERC-funded scientists to:
a) recognise the relevance of science to policy-makers;
b) identify available opportunities, routes and best practice to influence policy-making;
c) communicate science in an appropriate and accessible way, to the right policy-makers, showing how it fits their policy needs.
The booklet explains key aspects of the UK policy-making process and gives links to some important information sources.
Case studies from the impact of environmental research are used throughout the booklet to illustrate good practice in science-to-policy.
The booklet also indicates where to find help within NERC and gives information on training.
