PEP hosts Annual Conferences and General Meetings to bring together researchers and policy stakeholders for capacity building and policy research discussions. The events usually attract over 100 development researchers, practitioners, international experts, representatives of donor and international organizations, and policy actors.
PEP supports developing country research teams as they organize national policy conferences to disseminate their project findings and recommendations. These are key events where PEP researchers directly communicate and discuss their PEP research findings to an audience of policymakers, advisors and other stakeholders, in their home countries.
PEP highlights the significant number of PEP-funded researchers invited to present their work at international conferences. These invitations testify to the acknowledgment of PEP researchers as field specialists by the international development research community.
As well as in-person training during the PEP Annual Conference, PEP provides online training courses on the most up-to-date techniques and tools for economic policy analysis. These programs aim to help local researchers contribute to the design of effective national growth and poverty reduction strategies in their own countries.
PEP also publicizes events and opportunities from the development research community that may be of interest to its members, for example, job offers, calls for proposals, international conferences, etc.
