Upcoming events

Upcoming event
Further and higher education providers face severe resource challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. At this event, IFS researchers and panellists Philip Augar and Mary Curnock Cook will analyse these challenges. This event coincides with the launch of our 2020 annual report on education spending in England, supported by the Nuffield Foundation.
Upcoming event
As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science, senior researchers from the Institute for Fiscal Studies and the National Institute of Economic and Social Research will join together to look at how Covid-19 has impacted the public finances, including what we can learn from comparisons with the fallout from the financial crisis and how uncertainty around the economy has affected public spending in the past.
Upcoming event
The COVID-19 crisis has been a perfect financial storm for councils, pushing up spending and hitting local income streams. This event will explain how the COVID-19 crisis has been affecting local finances and economies, how councils have been responding, and key issues for the next few years as we seek to recover.
Upcoming event
A Spending Review is a difficult balancing act at the best of times, forcing Chancellors to make difficult choices between competing government departments and services, and trade off higher spending against the tax or borrowing needed to pay for it. This year's Spending Review is likely to be the most difficult to date. At this event, IFS researchers will look ahead to the upcoming Spending Review, and outline the options, opportunities and challenges facing the Chancellor.
Upcoming event
A socially mobile country provides equal opportunities for everyone, across big cities and small towns, and regardless of whether your parents are rich or poor. This event will look at the state of mobility across England and explore policy options for any government committed to a levelling up agenda.
Upcoming event
The share of people staying on in education beyond the age of 18 has grown substantially in the UK since the 1980s. Yet until now, evidence on the effect of these qualifications on subsequent earnings has been limited. This event will present key findings from three pieces of research published in 2020 by the IFS on returns to education.
Upcoming event
IFS, Discover Economics, and the Economics Observatory present Generation-COVID: a webinar for 15-17 year olds exploring what Covid-19 means for the future of the economy. What will be the impact of disruption to schools? Will the way we work change forever? Our panel of economists will answer your questions on Covid-19 and the economy.
Upcoming event
Each year early career economists at IFS deliver a day of public economics talks, aimed at A-level and undergraduate students who have an interest in economics or might want to pursue a career in public policy research. As part of this year’s Festival of Social Science, we will be live streaming a selection of lectures from the series.
