University of Manchester “Policy Week” events
Cut and paste below. It will, I suspect, mostly be chalk and talk/sage-on-the-stage/ego-foddering/preening-and-attacking. That’s just the way the species has chosen to roll. Pity, but what are you going to do?
Policy Week 2015 (2-6 November)
Science, Technology and Public Policy
Stretching across five packed days and featuring discussion, lectures, workshops, simulations and even films, Policy Week brings together leading thinkers, academics, students and policy influencers to debate and progress key policy issues.
This year’s theme is Science, Technology and Public Policy, and the event programme is part of European City of Science Manchester 2016.
Academics from right across the University will be leading or contributing to this year’s programme, alongside expert representatives from numerous external organisations. It will make for fascinating debate, discussion and progression of key issues.
Policy Week will take place at the Manchester Museum at the University, but also at venues across campus and the city. Follow us on Twitter via @UoMPolicy or sign up to our mailing list, to be the first to hear news about Policy Week and updates on the schedule.
