Research Making a Difference – Funded Training

Researchers are entering a world where a strong evidence-base is essential to support action that will
protect our environment and tackle climate change. In a world that is complex and contains many uncertainties, this evidence helps policy-makers, business leaders and others make the best possible
decisions. The University of Sheeld’s Grantham Centre for Sustainable Futures and Imperial College
London’s Grantham Institute for Climate Change and Environment are teaming up with Defra, WWF UK,
Anglian Water, Natural England and others to oer a training programme on how to synthesise evidence for
non-academic audiences. The programme is aimed at late-stage PhD students and early career researches working within the NERC remit.

Our training will provide qualitative and quantitative skills in evidence synthesis and presentation for end user groups, indicating how these dierent styles of analysis, and use of outputs, can help researchers target and present their finding to different stakeholders. It will also aord signicant
engagement with end-users, providing an insight into their priorities and perspectives, and the dierent ways in which they engage with and respond to scientic evidence.

Commitment: The course will be delivered in three modules across ve months, requiring ten days of time commitment, eight days of which are on-site training.

Travel and accommodation costs are covered by NERC.
