Royal Society Pairing Scheme

Tuesday 18th October, 2016

Liberty Vittert has been accepted on to the Royal Society Pairing Scheme, with details of who she has been paired with to be announced shortly.

"This scheme gives policymakers and research scientists an opportunity to experience each other's worlds."

Each year 30 research scientists are paired with UK parliamentarians and civil servants. They learn about each other's work by spending time together in Westminster and the researcher's institutions.

Those taking part gain an insight into how research findings can help inform policy making, and come away with a better understanding of how they can get involved.

We'll hear more from Liberty about this after it begins later in the year.
