Are you an academic researcher?
Could you help the UK Parliament understand the barriers for academics in working with them, particularly those academics from more diverse backgrounds?
NERC have created a survey – please complete the short survey now and help NERC to support as many academics as possible to engage with Parliament.
The UK Parliament is committed to working with as diverse a range of people as possible. NERC have been working for a few years to inform and engage academic researchers in the work of Parliament through training and other activities. NERC are aware that some groups of academics engage with Parliament more than others, and would like to find out why.
NERC have just launched an online survey about the barriers to engaging with Parliament for academics. The survey is 14 questions long and should take around 5 minutes to complete. NERC would welcome contributions from anyone with something to tell them, although they are particularly interested in hearing from academics from groups who engage less with Parliament; women, academics from BAME backgrounds and academic with disabilities.
The survey closes on Friday 18th August 2017. The results from this survey will lead to activities focused on meeting some of the barriers identified and supporting a wider range of academics to engage with the business of Parliament.

Research, innovation and academia are playing an increasingly pivotal role in the commercialisation and economic momentum of the UK’s scientific development. This is set to soar on both a national and international platform following Government plans to invest £4.7 billion by 2020 into research and development, as announced in the Autumn Statement. Based on this they are now hosting their Science and Innovation conference to examine the future of the sector and your role within it.
