29 March 2021 – Workshop on “Effective Communication with Policymakers”

Academic research and policy making each have their own dynamics and requirements. For academics that have relevant evidence and findings for the direct participants in the legislative process it can be a real challenge to find ways to effectively communicate their findings.

In this online workshop, organized by the Digital Service Act Observatory, three insiders from the “Brussels bubble” – Kirsten Fiedler of MEP Alexandra Geese’s office, Diana Vlad-Calcic (European Commission) and Mathias Vermeulen (AWO) –  shared their do’s and dont’s with researchers on how to effectively communicate with policy makers.
