Nudging: Innovation through Behavioural Insights

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
Behavioural insights use psychological and cognitive factors that shape people’s behaviours to draft more impactful and cost-sound public policies. This approach breaks from classical approaches and instead devises ways to ‘nudge’ people into acting in specific, anticipated, manners. Behavioural insights are a growing research area in policy-making and innovation, and more must be done for public sector innovation to make full use of this new technique. This session will explore ways in which behavioural insights apply to innovation, and how the two can work together to allow for innovative systemic changes in the public sector.
