Do you want to run an event in Policy Week?

07 Apr 2015

Policy Week 2015 has the theme Science, Technology and Public Policy – and organisers are still looking for great event ideas from colleagues across the University

Policy Week runs from 2 to 6 November and is policy@manchester’s flagship engagement event, attracting top speakers and contributors from the world of policy, along with hundreds of enthusiastic attendees.

The deadline for submission of initial ideas is Friday, 17 April. As in 2014, the programme is expected to be very busy, so anyone interested in getting involved is advised to submit their ideas early.

Events do not just have to be about science and technology policy, but rather the impact that science and technology may have on different aspects of our society - and the potential implications for policymaking.

Organisers are looking in particular for creative, interactive and innovative events that move away from the usual panel discussion or keynote address format.

The ideas form can be downloaded from:

Anyone who wishes to join the Policy Week 2015 organisers’ project group to access relevant files, documents and presentations, as well as the latest discussions, should email Louise Pemberton at:
