What Works Global Summit

The What Works Global Summit is one of the biggest global conferences on evidence, which brings together experts from across the world to talk about their experience in using evidence in formulating better policies. 

The EPPI-Centre, at the UCL Institute of Education, was proud to be a sponsor of the What Works Global Summit 2016. We were involved in many sessions (please see details below) and hosted two public lectures by:

  • Dr David Halpern, National Adviser on the UK What Works Centres and CEO of the Behavioural Insights Team
  • Sir Kevan Collins, CEO, Education Endowment Foundation
