This series of eight workbooks was published by the Zurich-Basel Plant Science Center in Switzerland. It recognizes that communicating with policy makers is a key aspect of the work of many researchers around the world. They are meant to be used as a learning resource to advance education in life sciences at the policy decision level.

It emphasizes how scientists must follow a participatory approach in policy making. This means providing information so as to generate a debate on the subject, and eventually analyzing and assessing the policies. Scientific knowledge must be transmitted in an effective way and the proper communication is of utmost importance.

The entire series is available on PDF on the RRI Tools website.
