We work in low and middle income countries on a range of policy challenges, from healthcare and early years education, to corruption and tax collection.
We have as much to learn from our local partners – civil servants, NGOs and academic institutions – as they do from us. Building strong partnerships cross more than twenty countries has allowed us to adapt, improve and scale many of our original tools and trials.

A rush on the high street? How narratives will shape the economic recovery
Narratives are stories that spread through society and help us make sense of the world around us. Economic narratives may include stories about what’s going on in the economy, the role of government, and what other consumers and businesses are doing. Some economic narratives you may have heard on the grapevine include ‘people are going out in their droves to spend’ ‘or ‘it’s all about reigning in those purse strings’. These narratives are propagated through the media and social networks and can be enormously powerful in shifting people’s behaviour. At BIT we wanted to learn more about the role of economic narratives in our decision to go to the pub, the shop or the hairdresser post-lockdown.
Can nudging improve student wellbeing? Results from an RCT in Australia
Studying at university can be challenging at the best of times: students are often juggling financial stress, challenging course content, living or studying in a new city, and changes to their friendships and social support networks. The events of 2020 certainly do not appear to have helped: a recent survey of Australian university students found that 65% of students reported low or very low wellbeing. We were interested in exploring how we could proactively improve student wellbeing and social support.
