This event has passed.

BPC’s Evidence-Based Policymaking Initiative has been pursuing ways to implement the unanimous recommendations of the U.S. Commission on Evidence-Based Policymaking issued last year. BPC hosted an event marking the one-year anniversary of the commission’s final report and explored the future opportunities for evidence-based policymaking.

Federal agency leaders presented cutting-edge practices that result in development and use of evidence, researchers described real-world transformational evidence being built to inform government activities, and commissioners discussed what’s next for the evidence-based policymaking movement.
