IPPO Events

Hosting UK-wide roundtables to understand policy needs and share IPPO’s evidence reviews

A key element of IPPO’s work is hosting regular (virtual) roundtable events featuring policymakers from all UK nations as well as topic specialists and other leading experts. These roundtables are designed to:

  1. help us understand the most pressing policy questions, evidence needs and data gaps across all our social impact topic areas; and
  2. to highlight the findings from IPPO’s ‘deep-dive’ Rapid Evidence and Systematic Reviews when they are published.

Reports from all of IPPO’s roundtables to date are linked below:
