Evidence Intermediary Organisations: How to better connect research, policy and practice

20 . 06 . 2022

Session 2: ADVOCACY - 17.00 to 18.15 BST (London), 21 June 2022
Should intermediary organisations be involved in advocacy?


Many intermediaries know they cannot passively wait for elected officials and public servants to come to them for evidence. Even as neutral ‘honest brokers’ they need to proactively engage policymakers, including promoting the value of some types of evidence. Should intermediaries take on this role? If so, what are best ways for intermediaries to manage politics, politicians and government whilst sustaining political independence and non-partisanship?

Confirmed speakers and panellists include:

  • Oliver Bennett, Director, Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology, UK
  • Steve Martin, Director, Wales Centre for Public Policy, UK
  • Christine Weidenslaufer, Legislative Advisor, Biblioteca del Congreso Nacional de Chile
  • Amber Mace, Chief Executive, California Council on Science and Technology, US
