The IPPR Economics Prize

The Institute for Public Policy Research (IPPR) is delighted to invite you to a prize-giving ceremony for the IPPR Economics Prize. This will take place on Wednesday 10th July, at 12.30 – 14.30 in the Prince Philip Room at the RSA, 8 John Adam St, London WC2N 6EZ. 

The IPPR Economics Prize was launched in November 2018 to seek out the best ideas to achieve a step change in the quantity and quality of the UK’s economic growth. The Prize set out to encourage new and creative thinking in economics: we wanted to know whether the downward trend in the rate of economic growth could be reversed, and if so, how this can be done sustainably. Is it realistic, desirable and achievable for the UK economy to grow at 3 or 4 per cent in the 2020s?

Our judging panel of John Eatwell, John Mills, Helena Morrissey and chair, Stephanie Flanders, examined over 200 entries. At this ceremony the winners will be announced and the prizes, which total £150,000, will be awarded.

Join us to hear the winning ideas discussed with the judges and the head of the IPPR Centre for Economic Justice, Carys Roberts.
