MAPP Investigator and P2.3b High Speed Sintering and Polymer AM theme lead Dr Candice Majewski took part in a scheme that gives policymakers and research scientists an opportunity to experience each other’s worlds.

Dr Majewski has written a blog about her experience with the Royal Society Pairing Scheme.

Each year 30 research scientists are paired with UK parliamentarians and civil servants. They learn about each other’s work by spending time together in Westminster and the researcher’s institutions.

Those taking part gain an insight into how research findings can help inform policymaking and come away with a better understanding of how they can get involved.
