WE ARE OBSESSED WITH TURNING DATA AND ECONOMICS INTO GOOD GOVERNANCE.

By uniquely combining data science with economics, we work with government partners to assess current policy, develop innovative ideas, and rigorously test for improvements. We integrate our research with education to produce a next generation of research-driven policy makers.

RIIPL + RIGOV

Working closely with government agencies as full partners throughout our research process, we learn, grow and develop policy together, with data and economics guiding process and evaluation.

RIIPL + GOV

Much of our research and work in Rhode Island has far-reaching applications. We take what we learn in Rhode Island to policy discussions around the world, extending the benefit from what we learn here.

RIIPL + Private Sector

We partner with private sector leaders in data science, information and research to incorporate innovations into smart policy design.

RIIPL + EDU

We integrate teaching with research and policy through the Watson Institute’s MPA program Data-driven Policy Track and the RIIPL Smart Policy Fellowship program. RIIPL is dedicated to educating a next generation of policy makers, data scientists and economists who use science and policy to improve equity in society.
