Delegate at a party conference.

Party conferences

We will be at the Labour and Conservative conferences this year.

Last year, we had a presence at the two conferences. At each conference, we hosted panel discussions and a drop-in data lounge.

Panellists, including metro mayors, representatives from think tanks, and academics, discussed the questions ‘Will robots put us out of work?’ and ‘Is further devolution the key to successful cities post-Brexit?’

Our drop-in data lounge invited conference delegates to drop by for an informal chat and to find out more about research at The University of Manchester. We provided information about a variety of research, and academics joined us to talk about their area of work.

We’re in the early stages of planning our events for this year’s conferences. Visit this page regularly or contact us to find out more.
