Policy Week 2014
(6 January 2015)
A new infographic shows that over 2,500 people attended Manchester Policy Week in 2014 – an increase of more than 350% on the previous year.
It reveals a picture of success for the organisers policy@manchester, academics and students from across the University, and external partners, who worked hard to put on events.
Despite increasing the size and scope of Policy Week in 2014, feedback from attendees reveals an increase in event quality and impact.
A total of 26 events took place on the theme of Addressing Inequalities, and the week marked the launch of the University’s Social Responsibility signature programme of the same name, including the launch of the Just Greater Manchester initiative.
A kick-off meeting for Policy Week 2015 (2-6 November 2015), which has the theme ‘Science, Technology and Public Policy’ will take place on Tuesday 17 February at 10am – everyone is welcome. Book your place now.
Lucy Powell MP will be speaking at a Policy@Manchester event on Friday 13 February.
