About the workshop series

Initiated by Professor Ian Chubb AC, former Chief Scientist, this Professional Workshop Series is co-designed with senior members of the Australian Public Service and ANU expertise.

Learning in an interactive case-study classroom, you’ll engage with the distinctive issues emerging from the intersection between scientific knowledge, technological opportunities and public policy decisions.

Designed to tackle today’s policy challenges with theoretical understanding and practical skills, this advanced workshop series will give you graduate-level learning in our masters degree classes, with comprehensive, real-world knowledge and skills. 

Choose your own participation pattern – attend 1 or all of the sessions.
