Upcoming programme:



"This was a really worthwhile course which provided real data and allowed policy makers time to consider their implications. The ability to debate and share knowledge was really beneficial."

 Senior Policy Official, UK Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS)


"Policy Links’ insights helped us identify the essential elements to promote a new Economic Development Policy for our region. Following the workshops, the 'Bilbao Smart Specialisation Plan' was launched. The Plan has already proved beneficial in allowing the region to participate in outstanding exchange networks at a European level."

 Special Policy Advisor, Bilbao City Council
