Do you believe data should drive decision-making? That communities should have a say in the decisions that affect them? That meaningful and systemic change is possible? So do we.
The Possibility Lab brings together public policy experts who are committed to evidence-based policymaking and who use quantitative, participatory, and experimental methods to understand the potential of new ideas to improve people’s lives. Based at the University of California, our small-but-mighty team works with partners across the country to produce rigorous research that advances data-driven innovation for the public good.
