The Centre for Public Sector Behavioural Economics

Today sees the launch of the Centre for Public Sector Behavioural Economics, an independent and free resource that we hope will act as a virtual learning institute for those interested in the power of behavioural insight.

The centre will take its strategic direction from an advisory group made up of local government chief executives, including Nick Bell (Staffordshire CC), Martin Reeves (Coventry CC) and Will Tuckley (LB Bexley).

The goal of the centre will be to provide a platform for practical learning to be shared, initially amongst local government, but in time, the wider public sector, on the use of behavioural insight in shaping services, demand management practice and prevention work. Over time the knowledge bank of case studies will grow and events and seminars will allow for the community of interest that sits in this space to come together and share their ideas.
