Date and time: 2nd March 10:00 – 11:30 CET
Target audience: MarComms / Public Affairs people
The lecturer: Mrs Mechthild Bülow, which most of you will know from the Public Affairs Workshop we organised 2019 in Berlin. She has a long history of working in Public Affairs with the EC , International Organisations and the German Government.
Do politicians see your field of scientifc research as controversial? Do your administrations adopt different perspectives? Are decision-makers perhaps reluctant to fund your projects? Do you need to advocate for your position more actively?
If your answer is Yes to most of these questions, you need a Position Paper.
This 90 min-webinar with question and answer sessions shows you how to do it, in 4 steps:
- Find the best way into politics: What decision-makers want and need from scientists.
- Communicate complex issues: The Position Paper from start to finish.
- Write compelling arguments, for written and verbal reports.
- Deal effectively with objection or rejection from the other side.
The second part of the seminar in May / June will have its focus on the actual writing of the position paper and will include peer-to-peer discussions of the own use case, as well as in-depth guidance from the lecturer.
Before the event: To allow the lecturer to best prepare for the seminar, participants are invited to submit their Questions and a short CV prior to the seminar.
Please send CV and questions to Leonie Schäfer <firstname.lastname@example.org> who will forward the documents to the trainer.
