Events

HEPI runs a range of events selected to maximise their effectiveness in reaching out to our target audiences and include invite-only high level seminars (such as our annual series of House of Commons breakfast seminars), conferences, one-to-one briefings, as well as set-piece events such as the HEPI Annual Lecture given by a senior international figure. Some of these events result in publications, which we also make available online.
