Our Guiding Principles
We are committed to supporting high quality, professional best practice dialogue projects, that bring tangible benefits to policy makers and give members of the public a genuine opportunity to inform policy making.
In order to do this we ensure that all dialogue projects funded by the programme adhere to the Sciencewise Guiding Principles and Quality in Public Dialogue.
The Government’s approach to public dialogue is set out in the Sciencewise Guiding Principles. This document outlines the essential elements of public dialogue on policy involving science and technology.
Quality in Public Dialogue sets out a framework for assessing the quality of public dialogue in policy making under the Sciencewise programme.
“We believe that a project supported by Sciencewise adds independence and credibility to government led public dialogues.” Commissioning body
