About the Event
PolicyGPT will place you within the operations of a policymaker and given a problem statement and some guidance, ask you to propose data-driven policy solutions. Whether you’re an undergraduate or a postgraduate student, a passion for social problem solving and some programming skills are all you’ll need! PolicyGPT is a competition where participants in teams are given a problem statement at a national level and are asked to utilize secondary research and nationally representative datasets to identify key problem areas and suggest potential policy reform surrounding the same. Students from all disciplines are encouraged to participate, and can use any software to help their case (R, Stata, Python, etc.) The competition aims to foster interdisciplinary collaboration, analytical thinking, and policy-oriented research among students. By engaging with real-world issues and employing data-driven approaches, participants develop critical skills in problem-solving, research methodology, and policy analysis.
