On Think Tanks sector survey

The OTT sector survey will help understand how policy research centres, think tanks, and those related to think tanks and evidence informed policy, see the current context, the key challenges faced and the key issues to address.

The questions for the 2021 edition are:

  1. Reflecting on 2020, has the context in which your organisation operates changed? If so, how?
  2. How do you foresee the context (in which your organisation operates) for 2021?
  3. Is your organisation planning to grow, reduce or stay the same in 2021 ?
  4. Which will be the key challenges you think your organisation will face/ is facing in 2021?
  5. Which will be the key issues you will be focusing on (2021 and onwards)?

The results will be analysed anonymously, and used to inform an article and the state of the sector report (read the 2020 edition).

This initiative builds on the 2020 survey on the impact of COVID-19, which gave a rapid overview of how think tanks were affected by the pandemic and how they responded to the early months of the crisis.

Further surveys will be carried out yearly to track changes in the sector and to address topical issues that might arise.
