The mission of MIT's Policy Lab at the Center for International Studies (PL@CIS) is to develop and enhance connections between MIT research and public policy, in order to best serve the nation and the world in the 21st century.
The PL@CIS accomplishes the mission by:
- Identifying policy-relevant research on campus.
- Working with faculty to identify the policy implications of their work.
- Creating and implementing outreach strategies to engage relevant policymakers and other stakeholders in dialogue.
- Providing coaching and communication training to make engagement effective.
PL@CIS support allows MIT researchers to effectively develop relationships with minimal expenditure of faculty time.
