APO Forum 2017: Evidence, impact and access to knowledge for policy and practice

Tuesday, November 28, 2017 - 10:00 to 16:00
Description

The inaugural APO Forum brings together the network of policy makers, researchers, think tanks, NGOs and industry to discuss and debate the many issues facing evidence, expertise and information access for public policy and practice.

Forum topics include evidence, impact and the policy process, data, tools and platforms for access and analysis of policy issues, the challenges of information access and use and how to improve the system for better public policy and access to knowledge.

Please join us after the forum to celebrate APO’s 15 year anniversary as an open access evidence-base for policy and practice resources. From Australian Policy Online to Analysis and Policy Observatory, APO continues in its mission to make research and resources accessible, discoverable, and useable. We look forward to celebrating this landmark with our readers, contributors and partners.
