This blog post was written by James Lush, the Biochemical Society’s Policy Officer

The Government Office for Science (GO-Science) has published ‘A Guide to Engaging with Government for Academics’, highlighting how interested individuals may get involved with policy.

The document is very short (like this post!), focussing on giving a very broad overview and pointers for where to find out more. GO-Science also cite this acronym guide produced by the British Science Association as a way of deciphering ‘who is who’ in the field. It has been noted before that its length is ridiculous – but it does give an indication of the myriad ways to get involved in discussions.

It’s worth a look. After all, as the guide says, “scientific advice and evidence is crucial for making good policy”. Do get in touch if you are a member of the Biochemical Society and want to get involved.
