Based on the experience of your trainer and discussion with the group: Consider where you would place yourself on a continuum from passive informer to active influencer, trading off the risks of not achieving impacts versus the potential risks to your reputation Extract best practice principles from a range of different policy briefs, and consider how you might design something around your research, or in collaboration with colleagues doing more policy-relevant research linked to your work In addition to the formal mechanisms you can use to get your evidence into policy, consider how to build trust and credibility for your research from the bottom up via policy and evidence analysts and the top-down via intermediaries who can work directly with ministers Discuss ways of making initial contacts, finding the right people to influence within the policy community and how to work with different types of knowledge brokers and intermediaries to get research messages across without losing control of your message ​
