Event description
University of Chicago Launches New “Center for Impact Sciences"

About this Event

Please join us for a reception to celebrate the launch of The Center for Impact Sciences at the University of Chicago’s Harris School of Public Policy. This Center will help policymakers use evidence to inform program and policy design by pioneering new frontiers in data standardization, evidence synthesis and predictive analytics.

The Center aims to advance the conversation about what it really means to be “evidence-based,” and there is no better place to start the conversation than in Washington DC. Please join our host, the Data Coalition, and our University faculty, as we convene leaders, policy-makers, researchers and social scientists to discuss the future of the evidence-based policy movement.
