2019 CSaP Annual Conference

26 June 2019, The Royal Society, London

CSaP's Annual Conference will bring together members of our network from government, academia and elsewhere to discuss some of the policy challenges we have worked on over the past year such as environmental policy; emerging technologies and social care; quantum computing; risk and uncertainty; and many more.

This year’s annual conference marks the start of CSaP’s 10 year anniversary. With a focus on topics that CSaP has worked on during the year, academic experts will offer insights into some of the latest research that has the potential to inform decisions taken by policy makers.
