Ideas and influence: how can scientific knowledge shape policy?

Should science – and scientists – have a greater influence on public
policy, specifically environmental policy, in Australia? If so, how might
this be achieved? The final event of the 2013 TERN
Symposium<http://www.tern.org.au/Welcome-pg24024.html>is a forum
organised by
ACEAS<http://www.tern.org.au/Australian-Centre-for-Ecological-Analysis-and-Synthesis-pg17735.html>and
supported by
Questacon <http://www.questacon.edu.au/#canberra>.

A panel of distinguished scientists and policymakers will present their
knowledge and experience of successes and failures in linking science to
policy development, and the challenges of maintaining dialogue between the
two worlds. The panel discussion will be moderated by Ms Sara Phillips,
from ABC Environment online <http://www.abc.net.au/environment/>, and there
will be opportunities for questions from and interactions with the audience.
The forum will commence at 5.30 pm on Wednesday, 20 February, with drinks
and canapés at Questacon, the National Science and Technology Centre, which
is an easy stroll across the lawns from Old Parliament House in Canberra.
