PHSP seminar: Policy dialogues to bridge the research-to-policy gap

2017-05-0509:00 till 12:30 Sterky, Widerström building, Tomtebodavägen 18ACampus Solna

The Doctoral Programme in Public Health Science (PHSP) welcomes all doctoral students and researchers at KI to seminar 3 from our series From evidence to policy, with seminar leader Olivia Biermann.

In this seminar, you will get a better understanding of knowledge translation, evidence-informed health policy-making, as well as WHO’s EVIPNet and its activities.

You will become familiar with the different steps in implementing a policy dialogue – from the preparation (incl. stakeholder mapping), to their facilitation and follow-up.

About the seminar leader

After graduating in Global Health at KI and working as a research assistant at PHS and LIME, Olivia Biermann joined the World Health Organization (WHO) Regional Office for Europe in Copenhagen in 2014 as a consultant in knowledge translation and evidence-informed policy-making.

She supports WHO’s Evidence-informed Policy Network (EVIPNet) and its activities in Central/Eastern Europe and Central Asia. Recently, EVIPNet’s activities in Estonia led to a tax on sugary drinks that will be introduced in 2018 to tackle obesity.
