Twinning Programme

Twinning Programme

The Politics Plus Twinning Programme, operated in conjunction with the Royal Irish Academy, offers MLAs a unique opportunity to engage with experts across a range of different fields, including biotechnology, renewable energy and medicine.

Through the Twinning Programme, MLAs will be matched with an industry leader in an area of specific interest to them.

Over the course of four meetings they will share their knowledge, allowing MLAs to gain a greater understanding of the state of the art within that field and the industry expert to benefit from an invaluable insight into political decision making and policy development.

At the end of the programme both parties will report back on their findings to the appropriate Assembly Committee.


The Politics Plus Twinning Programme will launch in 2016. For further information please Contact the Team.
