How UK-wide roundtables help us understand policy and research needs

A key element of IPPO’s work is hosting regular (virtual) roundtable meetings featuring policymakers from all of the UK nations as well as topic specialists and other leading experts.

These roundtables are designed to help us understand what the most pressing questions, evidence needs and data gaps are, relating to one of our IPPO policy topics.

The next two roundtables on our calendar are:

  • How should the UK improve adult training and job placement to aid its recovery? A joint roundtable with the Economics Observatory (IPPO’s sister Observatory) on Tuesday 20 April (3.30-5pm). You can register for this event here.
  • Online education: What will we take forward from the pandemic? This roundtable event, which forms part of a longer-term systematic review of evidence in this area, is on Monday 26 April (4-5pm).
