As part of INSIGHTS mission to foster the dialogue between research and society, we host events like roundtables, discussions and talks. Our seminar series INSIGHTS Roundtable aims to create a forum for the discussion of current political issues between science, politics, administration and society. In the informal series researchers and practicioners can exchange their knowledge and ideas towards policies. Importantly, these exchanges have both a research and a policy component.

Junior and senior researchers as well as policymakers and stakeholders are encouraged to propose roundtables and to apply for funding to organize them. The collaboration of junior and senior persons in organizing the roundtables is encouraged.

Furthermore INSIGHTS co-finances the CEPA Policy Lectures, which bring together high-level policymakers and policy advisors with researchers and advanced students in the field of economic and environmental policy.
