Multimedia from ‘Circling the Square 1: research, politics, media and impact’
Below is a collection of multimedia items from a conference held at the University of Nottingham last year.
The conference, titled ‘Circling the Square: research, politics, media and impact’, explored the role of knowledge in policy making, bringing together international scholars in the natural sciences, social sciences and humanities, practitioners at the science-policy interface, the public and the media.
A follow-up conference will take place in June 2015.
