PRI Academic Network Week

The PRI Academic Network Week will be hosted across five days between 13-17 September 2021.

To join the event, please register here. Once registered, you will be able to access the Zoom sign in link at the top of the agenda.

The event brings together the latest high-quality evidence and insights in responsible investment practices in an accessible way and aims to bridge the gap between academic researchers and investors.

The findings will be presented by their authors and discussed by investment practitioners and academics to offer feedback, to understand the work in the context of the literature and in relation to real world practice.

The event offers a unique opportunity for academics and investors to engage with each other, learn and discuss the latest insights. To find out more about the PRI’s Academic Research programme and access past event papers, blogs and podcasts visit our website here.
