Behavioural science research is an important contributor to improving our understanding of the factors that influence policy effectiveness and public trust, including stressors like misinformation in digital information ecosystems.

This event will highlight recent findings from ground-breaking behavioural science research on trust and misinformation and will provide a deeper dive into the effectiveness of behaviourally informed interventions.

Participants will learn about the potential implications of this research on comprehensive policy responses to misinformation and disinformation, and will explore the potential for applied behavioural science to help inform effective and scalable tools.
