Innovations in European Public Policies


Economic growth, good infrastructure, and stable families are at the top of any government's agenda. Innovation in these policy areas is key to the success of all nations around the world. Over the last few years, Poland has offered a vision of what can be achieved through innovative policy making - from developing new road networks, to offering early support for young families. 

Join us as we discuss what Europe can learn from the Polish model, as we discuss what innovation in policy really looks like. We will be launching three new reports covering: the Family 500+ Programme, Closing the VAT Gap, and Public Policy in Infrastructure.
