Staying up to date
There are various ways to stay up to date with opportunities to engage with Parliament as a researcher or knowledge mobiliser. These are listed below.
If you are a researcher
Follow us on Twitter: @UKParl_Research. UK Parliament’s Knowledge Exchange Unit (KEU) retweet all opportunities we come across to engage with Parliament (and the Devolved Legislatures). These include select committee calls for evidence, POST calls for expert contributions, special advisor positions, fellowships and events.
Sign up to the POST mailing list: POST sends a regular newsletter which details opportunities to feed into the work of POST, attend events or conduct a fellowship. The newsletter also details the work POST has produced.
Follow individual select committees on Twitter: You can look at contact details including Twitter for individual committees on their webpage. You can also find their Twitter handles through a search engine.
Sign up to email alerts through the Parliament website: You can register for alerts by topic. These will include select committee inquiries, other parliamentary activity and news on the topic/s you choose.
If you are a knowledge mobiliser
We have a growing network of knowledge mobilisers. These are people such as university staff working in knowledge exchange, impact officers, policy managers, or academic librarians. They are also policy-focused intermediaries in organisations such as learned societies or professional bodies. We work with this network to support researcher engagement, communicate key opportunities and information around engaging with Parliament, and understand the priorities, needs and challenges of the research sector.
If you occupy one of these roles, we would love you to join our network. Please email us on email@example.com to let us know you'd like to join, sharing with us your title, name, job title, institution and contact details.
