The objective of the NUI Galway Policy Lab is to develop and utilise methodologies for modelling the impact of policy and policy change.

In particular, the Lab aims to

  • Promote synergies in research and model development
  • Increase the use and applicability of the modelling infrastructure developed
  • Undertake analyses to support the development of better policy
  • Partner in funding applications

The Lab links researchers and PhD students in 4 Institutions

It holds a weekly brown bag research seminar to facilitate interaction between members of the Lab. The seminar is streamed on Skype as PhD students are based globally.

Membership is open to all those with an interest in policy modelling and implementation.
