This POSTnote will provide an overview of online advertising technologies and how they work. It will consider the importance of this industry for the UK, and the challenges that online advertising technologies present for market competition and consumer protection. It will also look at potential technical mitigations that might help to address these issues.
Through a year-long collaborative pilot, POST will test different ways to marry parliamentary demand with academic rigour, to enable parliamentarians to have greater access to accessible, relevant evidence syntheses.
The project will develop and evaluate training, templates and toolkits to support co-production of rapid reviews. The reviews will be co-produced between POST advisors and Early Career Researchers and PhD students from UK universities, and reviews will cover a broad range of topics.
It is hoped that, following this pilot, the collaborative partners will be able to support other stakeholders to use the materials and insights developed to deliver their own programmes of co-production.
Jonathan Breckon was selected In February 2022 as a CAPE Policy Fellow based in POST to take forward this work.
