The UK Parliament is delighted to announce the launch of a new web hub for academic researchers.
‘Research Impact at the UK Parliament'<http://www.parliament.uk/research-impact> provides comprehensive information for researchers and universities on how they can engage with Parliament.
The hub answers three key questions:
• What is Parliament interested in?
• How does Parliament use research?
• Why engage with Parliament?
It provides essential information on ways to engage with Parliament and stay up to date, as well as contact details of parliamentary teams and staff who work with research to support Parliamentarians.
The pages feature a variety of case studies in which researchers from across the UK, and from diverse disciplinary backgrounds, write about their experiences of working with a number of parliamentary offices.
The Graduate School are offering five Postgraduate Research Students the opportunity to have a course of professional coaching sessions to support and help them progress in their doctoral studies. If you are a UoN Postgraduate Researcher and are interested in applying for these sessions, you have until 8th December to apply. Read on if you are interested…. Read the rest of this entry
