Overton's EARMA presentation: How do researchers influence policy?

This week, we're heading to Oslo for the EARMA 2022 conference. We're really excited to be be attending an in-person conference after a long hiatus, and to participate in discussions on research support in the new normal – the theme of the event.

Terry Bucknell will be presenting a poster that outlines our framework for how the research administration community can track the impact of outputs and scholars in policy:
