From awareness to impact: mechanisms of change in responsible investment

We are delighted to announce that this year’s the PRI Academic Network Conference will be part of PRI in Person for the first time, with a full stream dedicated to academic research. The conference will be held on 8 – 10 September at the ICC, ExCeL London, enabling academics and investors to engage, learn and discuss the latest insights, and to network.

The PRI is also proud to collaborate with The Systemic Risk Centre, based at the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) for the PRI Academic Workshop. This additional event is for PRI signatories, other responsible investment professionals and academics to enhance their knowledge and practices, but also for deeper interactions in a distinct community setting. The Workshop will be held on 11 September.
