Policy makers are facing the need to reach timely decisions in an increasingly volatile, uncertain and complex environment. Robust evidence can effectively feed into the policy and decision making processes, contribute to the effectiveness of public interventions, achieving inclusive growth, and help rebuild trust in public institutions and science.
To this effect we are co-organising a conference on Governing better through evidence-informed policy making, on 26-27 June 2017, in Paris, France.
The event is organised in partnership with the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), Campbell Collaboration and the International Network for Government Science Advice (INGSA).
The conference includes plenary and thematic breakout sessions, and use interactive workshops and lab formats. It is an opportunity to share best practices in how to encourage and facilitate the uptake of evidence in policy making, from high-level political decision making to day-to-day practice and service delivery.
