Michael will describe the work of the Behavioural Insights Team, which was first established in the UK cabinet office in 2010, and the growth of the movement towards applying behavioural science to policy - and rigorously testing it - that has emerged over the last five years. He will also briefly describe some areas where Behavioural Science has not yet been applied, or could be applied better.

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.
