Policy networks

These networks allow our policy work to effectively and quickly reach other organisations for maximum impact.
Science policy networks are an important facet of the Society's engagement with external organisations. These networks enable us to share evidence and the experience of our Members to achieve maximum impact. Most networks meet regularly throughout the year to look at issues of interest to our community. If you would like to know more about any of these networks, and how you can get involved, please contact [email protected].
