POST has partnered with Sense about Science and London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) to host Evidence Week in Parliament, from 14 until 18 November 2022.
About POST events
POST is committed to making research accessible to the UK Parliament. To achieve this we host a range of events throughout the year, which aim to give parliamentarians and staff the opportunity to hear directly from leading experts.
POST events range from closed intimate round-table discussions for parliamentarians, to presentations to academic delegations, seminars on key topics, and even full-day conferences open to the public, often in collaboration with major academic bodies. We strive to ensure accessibility, representation, balance and impartiality, which is why our events draw from a wide range of topics and bring a diverse selection of specialists and stakeholders to share their expertise.
This online event on Thursday 17 March 2022 will brief parliamentarians on the evidence on the financial risks of nature loss and how they can be assessed.
Sense About Science in partnership with POST and the Commons Library bring Evidence Week in Parliament this November. This year's event will focus on Net Zero, Health, and Data and AI.
