SPARK session – Testing social policy innovation – Bratislava
Monday 12th of May 2014 Park Inn Danube Hotel, Rybne nam. 1, 811 02 Bratislava, Slovakia 9:00am - 12:00pm
This information session explored methods to test Social Policy Innovation. We reviewed the practice of testing new ideas and policies and collecting evidence about the real impact of measures on people. We also launched a new European-based Network for Social Policy Analysis for Robust Knowledge (SPARK).
The event covered:
- The meaning of Social Policy Innovation
- The benefits of policy impact assessment
- Social policy experimentation best practice in Europe
- Follow up training and resources available from the European Commission
- The benefits of joining SPARK
The SPARK network is for policymakers, practitioners, organisations or individuals who want to further their own evidence through policy impact assessment and encourage a wider debate on research in social policy.
This is part of a larger initiative from the EU Directorate General for Employment, Social Affairs and Inclusion to promote the benefits of social policy experimentation throughout the EU. The project is managed by LSE Enterprise, the consulting arm of the London School of Economics, in partnership with J-PAL Europe and the Alliance for Useful Evidence.
Join SPARK here.
