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.
