Convening and Science Advisory Services

INR’s convening and science advisory services are flexible in that they can be tailored to different types of issues and circumstances, and offer a range of products or services, including but not limited to:

  • Informal or formal consultations or roundtable discussions with some combination (depending on the circumstances and issue at hand) of agency staff, independent science experts, stakeholders, and legislators.
  • Formally researched and written reviews or consensus reports of the scientific underpinnings of a natural resource management plan or strategy, policy, or regulation, using a panel of independent experts. 
  • Workshops, conferences or symposia that convene reviewers and, depending on circumstances, agency personnel, legislators, stakeholders, or the public for discussion and social learning regarding scientific evidence.
  • White papers or knowledge syntheses on issues of particular interest and policy relevance.
