Policy Week

policy@manchester would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who got involved in our fourth Policy Week in November, whether that was organising events, speaking, or as part of a very engaged audience.
 With the theme of Science, Technology and Public Policy, it formed part of Manchester European City of Science 2016.

Highlights in the 32-event programme included a fascinating keynote from Lord David Willetts, the former Minister for Universities and Science, audience-interactive debates on fracking and the devolution of energy generation, and Lucy Powell MP (Labour) on the realities of getting evidence into policymaking, which included a Twitter Q&A.

Now that the dust has settled and the policy@manchester team, who organise the event, have recovered they have rounded up a wealth of resources from the week.

If you missed Policy Week 2015 and want to be the first to hear about future events and initiatives, you can sign up to receive the policy@manchester newsletter.
