About the HC Coombs Policy Forum

The HC Coombs Policy Forum is a strategic collaboration between the Australian Government and ANU, at the Crawford School of Public Policy. It focuses on supporting policy-relevant exploratory and experimental work at the interface between government and academia. This policy work is carried out in partnership with government by setting mutually agreed objectives and also by providing opportunities for government officials to spend time at ANU working on specific policy projects. In collaboration with research centres in Crawford School and elsewhere at ANU, the HC Coombs Policy Forum also organises public lectures and contributes to public debate. In addition, the HC Coombs Policy Forum plays an important national role via a co-production relationship with the Australian Broadcasting Corporation (delivering the Future Forum television series). The HC Coombs Policy Forum is administered by the Department of Industry, Innovation, Science, Research and Tertiary Education (DIISRTE) on behalf of the Australian Government as a whole.

HC Coombs Policy Forum is a key element of the Australian National Institute of Public Policy (ANIPP), located at the Crawford School.
