Policy Salons

Policy Salons are a new initiative by the Royal Society and are intended for the broader Policy Adviser community within Government, National Academies, Learned Societies, the Charitable sector, Universities, Business and Industry. 

The series of Policy Salons will provoke new thinking on issues with a scientific angle, help foster connections between individuals and organisations, and build new links with business and industry. 

Our most recent Policy Salon, on the Theory of Change was held on 26 January 2018 and explored how the Theory of Change is used across the UK charity sector and within government, as a framework to plan change and evaluate impact once the change has occurred.

Previous Policy Salons include Telling the story: How we use evidence, read more on our blog.
