For Policy Makers

In collaboration with the Centre for Science and Policy (CSaP), we support academics to connect with public policy professionals over a range of matters relating to cutting edge infectious diseases research. 

This is crucial for the development of evidence-based policy, ensuring that government is accurately informed and that the impact of research on society is harnessed more effectively.

  • CSaP’s Policy Fellowships programme promotes links with government offices and departments, as well as companies and third sector organisations.
  • Policy workshops provide a forum for policy professionals and researchers to debate, cross-examine and re-evaluate issues that are of direct relevance to public policy.
  • Professional development activities present opportunities for early- and mid-career researchers to learn how academic research contributes to policy making, and to gain experience of working at the intersection of research and policy.
  • CID is engaged with undergraduates, and early career researchers in debates, seminars, convening meetings and can be contacted directly or through CSaP.

If you would like to offer your services to get involved in a policy event, seek experts, or to discuss an idea or opportunity, please get in touch by emailing the coordinator directly or
