BRAINPOoL (Bringing Alternative Indicators into Policy) is a project funded by the European Union FP7 funding stream, looking at the barriers to, and opportunities for the use of Beyond GDP indicators in policy. During the course of the project (which runs from October 2011 to April 2014) we have been: In November 2013, a workshop was held bringing together a unique combination of indicator promoters, policy-makers and other stakeholders to explore ways of accelerating the uptake of Beyond GDP indicators, and a road map was proposed.

In March 2014, the project concluded with a final conference in Paris, which explored challenges and solutions for a Beyond GDP approach to policy making (not just Beyond GDP indicators). The conference focussed on the steps needed to tackle two of the central barriers we identified: developing techniques for helping address multiple goals and integrating different policy areas; and creating a Beyond GDP narrative which resonates and inspires confidence with the public. See the conference page for more details.

BRAINPOoL Final Conference a success

Thank you to everyone who attended and participated in the BRAINPOoL Final Conference and the associated workshops.  The Conference has been described as “a turning point in the whole Beyond GDP debate”, and we believe that it marks a moment of new energy in transforming politics and policy so as to shift the focus away from GDP growth.  You can find more information and the presentations here.
