In order to keep up-to-date with policy issues and policy development, the Industry Forum liaises closely with other thinks tanks, universities and consultancies. From time to time we cooperate with other organisations on projects.
We have recently worked with the Federal Trust on an EU project to suggest how members states could work together more effectively. We have run events with the New Economics Foundation on innovative ways to help rebalance the economy, and we worked with multiple partners on a collaborative project to investigate whether a Standing Commission on Responsible Capitalism, operating somewhat like the Law Commission, might have averted some of the problems that have occurred in the last few years.
For the future, we see that the only way to cover the range of issues of concern to our members is to cooperate more widely with other organisations and we will increasingly be working in partnership on events, research and policy consultancy with likeminded and complementary project partners.
