The conference

The high-level conference “Power from Statistics; Data, Information and Knowledge” will bring together eminent representatives of different perspectives of society during two intensive days, for a forward-looking and critical discussion on what the future needs for evidence to inform policy would be, and how these information needs could be met by the European official statistics community of tomorrow. It will address statistical evidence in fields such as migration, globalisation, sustainability, and new economic and business models. As a key input to the conference, there will be an Outlook Report with articles in these domains written by various stakeholders.

The conference will take place in Brussels, and will run for two consecutive days, starting in the morning of 18 October 2017 and ending in the afternoon of 19 October 2017.
Further information about the Conference programme will follow during 2017.
