This week I had the honor of delivering a keynote speech at the NØF 2019 conference "Towards Policy-Relevant Ecology" in Tromsø, Norway. During this presentation I shared my career journey, starting off as a marine ecologist and moving much more towards the applied side of science, to give my research the best chance at generating real world impact. I have done this by working with partners in government agencies, NGOs and the private sector on projects that range from ocean management through to corporate biodiversity accountability over the last 15 years.
In my keynote I reflect on my experience of working across the science-policy-practice interface, and share what I believe are five critical factors for achieving research impact. I have shared my experience, particularly to help early career researchers wanting to enter into this emerging field of applied research across the science-policy-practice interface.
I'd like to thank the wonderful NØF 2019 organising committee for inviting me as a keynote speaker. I really enjoyed listening to many inspiring talks about ecological research that is spanning the science-policy interface in Norway!
