The Long Run Initiative (LRI) is a forum for academic experts, business leaders & public policymakers. It provides insights from the analysis of long-run experiences and trends to provide context and deepen understanding of the grand challenges facing businesses and government. LRI analysis focuses on where we have been, where we are now, and where we are going.

We believe that by understanding the past, we can better appreciate the forces that have created the present and how they will shape the trajectory of future of businesses, economies and societies.

Through the organisation of short, high-impact roundtable events, the LRI creates a dialogue to exchange knowledge and stimulate ideas, giving participants the opportunity to reflect on and discuss parallels from the past, and consider how these lessons apply to their own organizations.

Benefits of LRI
