The IPR is organising its second one-day "Policy School" at the Cabinet Office in London on 5th December 2017. The day will be led by officials from the Open Innovation Team. The Policy School’s purpose is to engage students in working on "live" policy problems - to gain experience of how Whitehall works, and to contribute to developing responses to new policy challenges. The specific focus of the day will be on challenges currently being worked on by different Whitehall departments related to the digital transformation of government, and is likely to include sessions on distributed ledger technology, web and social media analytics and machine learning.

20 post-graduate students will be selected to participate in the Policy School from the pool of applications we have received. Successful applicants will be notified by email by Tuesday 14 November 2017.

Standard class public transport travel fares will be paid, when accompanied with original receipts and a University of Bath expenses claim form.
