The LRI achieves its aims through the organization of high-impact events thematically focused on specific grand challenges facing business and society. The events bring together speakers and participants from a range of academic, corporate and policy backgrounds. The conferences, panels and briefings balance contributions from academic experts, business leaders and policy makers to highlight trends and parallels from the long-run experience and to reflect on their contemporary and future impact through dialogue and debate.


  • One to two hours
  • One panel of experts
  • Dynamic discussion on a single theme


  • Two to three hours
  • Two panels of experts
  • Two angles of a single grand theme


  • Half- or full-day meetings
  • two or more panels of experts
  • one or two keynote guests

Solutions Workshops:

  • Multi-disciplinary teams
  • Set up to challenge assumptions, redefine problems & create solutions to prototype and test

The Institute publishes a range of engaging high-quality reports, briefing notes and op-eds that are both synopses of events and commentaries on the themes we engage with. These are underpinned by academic rigour while remaining fully accessible to non-academic audiences.


We are currently working on a series of invitation-only events for senior scholars and decision makers engaged in the corporate and public policy arenas on critical contemporary challenges. Public events will be posted here. Watch this space for more information.
