Generating impact through innovation with David Halpern

The past few years have seen a global movement of governments working to mainstream approaches such as challenge prizes, behavioural insights and pay for performance funding models. This session at BX2019 explores how the UK and Canada have integrated innovative practices into policymaking – and the lessons they have learned along the way. Matthew Mendelsohn from the Government of Canada and Polly Mackenzie of Demos join Dr David Halpern of BIT to discuss the adoption of behavioural science theory and practice into Canadian policymaking.
