Moredun believes that the communication of research outputs to those developing and implementing policy is of crucial importance to help ensure that these policies are evidence based. The large majority of government-funded scientific research conducted at Moredun is policy relevant and it is important that the outputs from this research are communicated to the relevant audiences in a timely and effective manner.
To fulfil this commitment, staff from Moredun sit on or advise influential consultative committees, met regularly with senior members of the Scottish Government and DEFRA and maintain a close working relationship with industry bodies such as QMS, ELBEX, HCC and NFU/NFUS.
Moredun is proud to be involved in the Knowledgescotland programme. This new Government initiative aims to improve connectivity and knowledge exchange between policy makers and scientists through a range of different initiatives including a dedicated website, policy briefings, open house events, work shadowing schemes and various public events.
