Participants will experience coordinated problem-solving of complex issues with partners while gaining an advanced appreciation of the value of science, policy integration, and collaboration. This program runs over a 12 month period with monthly sessions and a week-long study tour to examine world-class science delivery in London, UK.


This program has been designed for individuals who work in science or policy and who have an interest in policy or science, respectively.

Each session is one-day long, and will be comprised of a mix of lectures from subject-matter experts, guest speakers and panel discussions by practitioners, and hands-on exercises to provide participants experience with the concepts being explored.
