At this point, viewers know some of the basics about interacting with policymakers – why these relationships are needed, the realities of policymaking, and the capacity in which researchers engage – but not how to communicate their research so it is best received. The RPC provides support in reviewing our network’s products and preparing them for policymaker consumption. This training details key science communication strategies including using simple language, focusing on solutions, telling stories, and displaying data. This training also covers what formats science communications can take, ranging from op-eds to congressional hearings.
