This workshop explores how Congress and the Federal agencies interact with each other have an impact on research and science policy. We will discuss how both affect university research, and how best to navigate their procedures and cultures to get the best outcome.
Presenting your research to the Federal Government often takes a multi-pronged approach. This workshop features a former NSF program director and a senior Congressional staffer and will focus on how to prepare different communications strategies for congressional and agency interactions. Based on their extensive experience, the presenters will discuss best practices to employ and pitfalls to avoid so that you successfully build visibility in Washington DC.
