Sustainability Solutions Initiatives: What influences the decisions and actions of research investors?

Nancy Dahl

  • Practitioner Fellow, Walton Sustainability Solutions Initiatives

In this seminar, you’ll hear about common pitfalls and effective strategies for communicating with investors in scientific research and information. Yes, that includes the people who review your grant proposals. If you are seeking funding for research activities or advocating for your research findings to be used by stakeholders such as businesses or governments, then it’s likely that you’re dealing with people from a fundamentally different work culture, and it’s also likely that you don’t know them as well as you should.

Using her 15 years’ experience in sustainability policy and science management with the Australian Commonwealth Government, Nancy Dahl will provide insight into the priorities and practices of government grants programs, colorful illustrations of common mistakes in dealing with cultural divides between scientists and policymakers, and a discussion on strategies for improving communications and relations.
