UK Parliament Knowledge Exchange Unit: Upcoming Events in May 2021
Towards the end of 2020, the UK Parliament Knowledge Exchange Unit developed several 30 minute training sessions for researchers (including early career and PhD) and knowledge exchange staff on how to use research to engage with Parliament. These sessions remain available on their training webpage.
There are two further sessions that will take place in May 2021 to extend the current offering. Both sessions are intended to be recorded and made available afterwards.
