The Sydney Policy Lab is your policy lab
The lab is here to help you shape your ideas, plan your next event, connect with leading researchers and build your networks.
The challenges the world faces are complex, intricate, long-lasting, structural, and yet our political system is short-term and short-sighted. One way we address that problem is building on how institutions like universities think differently about how we work together.
Professor Duncan Ivison, Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Research)
