Join our partnership programme

IPPR's partnership programme is for organisations wishing to be at the forefront of policy formation and thought leadership.

Our partners gain a greater understanding of the challenges and opportunities in the key areas of public policy and have the chance to debate and discuss the bigger picture with some of the most important figures and brightest minds at our regular briefings, events and receptions.

  • Westminster Pulse: a regular briefing session with our take on the latest political developments, key moments in the political calendar, and an early look at our latest research with presentations from our experts.
  • Experts On Demand: regular access to our researchers to exchange ideas on policy.
  • Private events: private partner-only dinners at party conferences with high level guest speakers.
  • CEO insights: priority invitations to dinners with leading figures in public life. Annual lunch offer for you and your CEO with the Director of IPPR and one of our Trustees.
  • Economy update: a monthly update analysing key developments in the UK economy.
  • Annual Roundtable: we organise and deliver a dedicated roundtable event (for those partners that would find this useful), on a subject of your choice.
  • Research Insights: a regular briefing document on our upcoming research programme, with privileged early insight into developing work. 
  • Priority events: priority invitations to all IPPR events.
