Policy Week

Manchester Policy Week 2015 (2-6 November)

Science, Technology and Public Policy

Stretching across five packed days and featuring discussion, lectures, workshops, simulations and even films, Policy Week will bring together leading thinkers, academics, students and policy influencers to debate and progress key policy issues.

Previous high-profile speakers during previous Policy Weeks include Lord McFall, Tim Harford, Mark Henderson, Alison McGovern MP, Ivan Lewis MP, Danny Dorling and Lord Michael Heseltine - and the 2015 event will feature many high profile names

This year's theme is Science, Technology and Public Policy, and it will form part of Manchester European City of Science 2016, which launches with Manchester Science Festival the week before.

Academics from right across the University will be leading or contributing to this year's programme, alongside representatives from external bodies and organisations.

The Policy Week will take place at the University but also at venues across the city.

The full programme will be unveiled on 11 September. Follow us on Twitter via @UoMPolicy or sign up to our mailing list, to be among the first to hear about the line-up.
