Since 2016, Ci has delivered an annual Thought Leadership programme, developed in conjunction with RAND Europe and delivered in partnership with St George’s House, Windsor Castle. Over 200 representatives from industry, academia, the not-for-profit sector and government have participated in the programme to date. Our discussions have covered many of the most pressing issues we face as a society and produced many forward-looking recommendations for policymakers and others



Watch: Rachel Neaman, Ci’s CEO, and Hans Pung, President of RAND Europe, talk about our partnership work on the Thought Leadership programme as well as the Observatory for a Connected Society.
