On the 22nd of June 2016, Oxford University’s Blavatnik School of Government, in collaboration with the Behavioural Insights Team and Harvard’s Behavioral Insights Group, will host a meeting of academics and policymakers to discuss Data Science and Government.
This one-day conference programme will combine the latest academic findings with real-world results. There will also be collaborative sessions to find data driven solutions to problems faced by governments, such as allocating resources to projects or predicting problems before they arise. Delegates can expect talks by expert academics and practitioners and will hopefully leave with inspiration about what to try next in their own organisations.
Speakers will include:
- Professor Michael Luca, Assistant Professor of Business Administration, Harvard Business School
- Dr David Halpern, National Advisor for What Works and Chief Executive of the Behavioural Insights Team
- Miguel Goncalves and Aimee Murphy, Department for Education
The conference is free to attend, but places are limited to 80 delegates. Please register your interest in attending by filling out this form by 5pm on the 10th June 2016.
