Government policy covers a multitude of areas - health, education, energy and transport to name but a few. The use of mathematical models has gained much prominence through their use in facilitating economic evaluation. However, models have also been used in a number of other decision-making contexts including risk assessment and service planning and capacity modelling - all important facets of policy making.

 

This half day launch event aims to:

  • highlight the importance of mathematical modelling and techniques
  • generate greater awareness and understanding of its use in policy development
  • develop ideas to be explored in the workshops for early 2015
  • engage high level advocates in government and academia who will encourage colleagues to get involved in future events

 

 The workshop will take place at Kohn Centre, Royal Society, London. Please see the link for further information about the venue.

About Us

We aim to support public policy research across Cambridge University, working with colleagues in science, social science, the arts and humanities, to apply new thinking to public policy problems and promote research and analysis into the public policy process. We hope to connect and raise the profile of existing public policy related work across the University and support collaborative research that includes policy development in a range of subject areas.
