Dr John Oliver has recently been awarded an Academic Fellowship from the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST).
Parliament offers a range of fellowships which enable academics to conduct research within Parliament. POST Academic Fellows can examine Parliament itself or produce research to be used by Parliamentarians.
Academic Fellowships help to make scientific research accessible to UK Parliament by producing forward-thinking briefings on a range of subject areas. This allows academic research to have a real impact on policy decisions and wider society.
Dr John Oliver, Associate Professor of Media Management, has been awarded one of these prestigious fellowships which will allow him to use his research to influence UK Parliamentary strategy and operations over the long term.
Dr Oliver’s previous research has involved scenario planning with media firms and his work has impacted UK communications policy and multinational media organisations. Dr Oliver will be using this expertise in this Academic Fellowship which will see him working in the area of scenario planning with POST.
Dr Oliver said “I was delighted to find out I had been awarded a Parliamentary Fellowship, they provide a unique opportunity for academics to work with the UK Parliament. I look forward to working with POST and extending the impact of my research with Parliament.”
