You are warmly invited by Prof. Nigel Gilbert, Director of CECAN, to an afternoon to consider Policy Evaluation For A Complex World.
Introduced by Jane Elliott (Chief Executive, ESRC), with a keynote speech from Sir Mark Walport (Government Chief Scientific Adviser) and a panel discussion chaired by Roger Highfield (Dir External Affairs, Science Museum).
The panel members are; Sir Amyas Morse (Comptroller and Auditor General of the National Audit Office), Dame Margaret Hodge (MP), Dr David Halpern (Behavioural Insights Team), and Dr Ulrike Hotopp (Simetrica Ltd).
This event will entertain, engage and excite anyone with an interest in improving methods of policy evaluation across the energy, environment and food Nexus.
The panel will encourage debate on the Nexus policy areas at the heart of the Centre's work, and raise critical questions around complexity, evaluation methodologies, and 'what works in practice'.
You are also invited to a networking and drinks reception after the panel discussion.
The 'Centre for the Evaluation Across the Nexus', a £3m research centre hosted by the University of Surrey, brings together a unique coalition of experts to address some of the greatest issues in policy making and evaluation.
