CEDA members can contribute to targeted policy discussion throughout all stages of our research. Members are invited to attend our roundtables and working groups, provide valuable case studies to support our reports and advise as part of our Member Advisory Committees on CEDA's core research areas.
How can members engage with CEDA research?
CEDA regularly conducts roundtables and Co-Labs that bring together a cross section of government, industry and academia to discuss pertinent research topics relevant to our members. We use these Chatham-house discussions to bring diverse perspectives and insights that then inform our research agenda and policy recommendations.
CEDA draws on the expertise from our Member Advisory Committees (MACs) at every stage of our research development. MACs assist CEDA to inform our research thinking and insights, including the practical policy impacts and lessons for implementation.
Our members form a core part of our research reports, providing real-life case studies that illustrate the challenges and opportunities facing Australia today. By sharing their expertise and insights, members are able to shape future outcomes through policy.
Members who have featured as case studies in our reports have been approached by the media to tell their story as part of our report releases. As a trusted, independent think-tank, we drive the policy debate and development in the national interest.
I am incredibly grateful for the support received from CEDA and the opportunities they have provided. Their dedication to driving positive change on crucial societal issues is truly remarkable. Through participating in their Mental Health in the Workplace Research, presenting at CEDA Roundtables, and contributing to CEDA Opinion articles, I have been given various opportunities to raise awareness and promote my cause. I cannot express my gratitude enough for their continual support.
CEDA’s focus on advancing economic and social development aligns with GHD’s purpose to create lasting community benefit, together with our clients. The issues that CEDA investigates through its research and thought-leadership are also key issues for our clients and the communities they serve.
CSIRO has been a long standing member of CEDA. We have an affinity with CEDA’s purpose and seek to participate in inclusive debate and discussion, based on evidence and economic modelling to improve outcomes from Australia.
