2017 Philadelphia Behavioral Science Conference

The second annual Philadelphia Behavioral Science Conference will bring leaders from government and academia together to discuss how the social and behavioral sciences can be deployed to create more effective policies and programs in Philadelphia. The goal is to start conversations and collaborations that will improve city government and initiate exciting research. The Conference will also highlight projects developed and implemented by the City of Philadelphia's Philadelphia Behavioral Science Initiative over the past year, many of which began as a result of the 2016 Conference

GovLabPHL is the organizer of the 2017 conference. GovLabPHL is a multi-agency team led by the Mayor's Policy Office focused on developing innovative and evidence-based practice in city government. The team is comprised of City employees from the Department of Revenue, the Office of Transportation and Infrastructure Systems, Office of Open Data and Digital Transformation, and the Mayor’s Office of Community Empowerment and Opportunity.
