About POST events

POST is committed to making research accessible to the UK Parliament. To achieve this we host a range of events throughout the year, which aim to give parliamentarians and staff the opportunity to hear directly from leading experts.

POST events range from closed intimate round-table discussions for parliamentarians, to presentations to academic delegations, seminars on key topics, and even full-day conferences open to the public, often in collaboration with major academic bodies. We strive to ensure accessibility, representation, balance and impartiality, which is why our events draw from a wide range of topics and bring a diverse selection of specialists and stakeholders to share their expertise.

Event calendar

  • Sense About Science in partnership with POST, the UK Statistics Authority, the Office for Statistics Regulation, and Ipsos MORI, are taking Evidence Week online. Join us this November for a deep dive in cutting edge research.
