CSaP Annual Conference 2014: Evidence, Networks and Policy – Translating New Ideas into Better Outcomes

The Royal Society, 10 April 2014

Registration has now opened for the 2014 Annual Conference.

This year's annual conference will focus on the role of evidence and networks in public policy. Invited speakers from government, academia, industry and civil society will debate some of the key policy challenges identified by our network, including big data; open innovation; behavioural insights into emergency planning and response; and climate resilience in the built environment.

A poster competition will give early-career researchers an opportunity to discuss the potential policy implications and societal benefits of their research with policy makers. And networking sessions will provide an opportunity for attendees to meet with a range of experts and decision-makers, to make new connections and to develop existing relationships.

Since it was founded in 2009, CSaP has spun out a remarkable network of experts and decision-makers – a unique community of academics and policy makers collaborating in an innovative environment, building relationships based on understanding, respect and trust, and contributing to the production of policy-relevant evidence and expertise.
