Policy News February 2021

There are a number of Bills currently making their way through Parliament, in addition to many government consultations and parliamentary inquiries announced in recent weeks, that may be of particular interest to our members.  I have included a list of these below – and I encourage our members to share their expertise!  This is not only a great way to ensure that policy making in the UK is truly evidence-based, but also a great way to improve the impact of your research! There are also a couple of other interesting opportunities for engagement that we wanted to alert you to, below. If you have any questions on how to engage on these issues, please do not hesitate to contact me at [email protected].

Opportunities of Note

  • The Parliamentary Office of Science & Technology (POST) is looking for contributors to a new 'POST Note' on Remote and Flexible Working. To contribute your research and expertise, or act as a peer-reviewer, please see here for more details.
  • POST has also identified 20 COVID-19 Areas of Research Interest (ARIs) for UK Parliament, and is inviting experts to add their research relating to these ARIs to a repository that may be used to inform Parliament's work in future. We encourage you to sign up POST’s repository here.
  • The International Trade Committee is looking for Special Advisors on a range of issues from e-commerce to economic modelling. To learn more, see here.
