Rural Animal & Plant Health: Bridging the Gap Between Research & Policy Through Co-production
The session will seek to explore how innovative approaches can help to bridge the gap between research and policy in the broad area of rural animal and plant health.
Papers are invited which seek to investigate the role of increased stakeholder participation and engagement through approaches such as Citizen Science and Open Policy Making. Comment will be welcomed on the validity of co-designing government policy and the potential roles of various stakeholders. The session also aims to explore the methods that most effectively lead to comprehensive participation and engagement and will address how such approaches can be best deployed to usefully inform the development of robust policy.
