Securing Australia’s Future through Evidence Based Policy

The 2nd Annual Evidence Based Policy Summit offers a platform for policy-makers to hear from leading agencies that are at the front-line of service delivery, policy reforms and future funding priorities.

You’ll walk away understanding the crucial role of evidence-based policy in service delivery, how well-researched policy rises above politics, how to integrate AI to data collection and use, and what behavioural economics can teach us about policy making.

At the Evidence Based Policy Summit you will learn how to:

Learn how to get organisational buy-in to research-backed policy recommendations


Capitalise on the full power of data while avoiding ‘analysis paralysis’


Understand the role behavioural economics plays in policy development


Connecting data and evidence with policy design


Drive effective, cost-efficient research and evidence collection


Build relationships across departments and with the private sector
