A Policy Roadmapping Workshop was held on Wednesday 27th March at Reading University. The session, run by Professor Tim Dixon and Dr. Jacopo Torriti, encouraged researchers to think about the drivers, barriers and policy issues in their respective fields in order to map their research onto current UK legislation, identifying its relevance and contribution to the UK economy and policy impact.
Dr Mike Weston, knowledge exchange manager from the UK Energy Research Centre (UKERC), provided a knowledgeable and lively account of the evolution of UK energy policy over the last 30 years. The research engineers then broke up into teams to cover future policy drivers and legislation under three core research themes; energy, buildings, and technology & infrastructure.
The TSBE’s policy roadmap produced during this workshop will be published shortly
