The Long Run Initiative
The Long Run Initiative (LRI) is a not-for-profit forum linked to QUCEH and SIERC.
The Initiative is founded on three precepts:
- To demonstrate the practical value of historical expertise to contemporary decision makers.
- To create dialogue between academics, businesses and government.
- To provide an independent and international perspective on the challenges facing business and society.
Currently, the LRI achieves these aims through the organisation of high impact roundtable events that bring together speakers and participants from a range of academic, corporate and policy backgrounds to discuss historical trends that shape key contemporary challenges.
The LRI brings together the capabilities of two organisations to create a unique set of interests and expertise.
The Long Run Initiative is led by its co-founders and directors: Prof. John Turner, Dr. Laurence B. Mussio and Dr. Michael Aldous. Their combined experiences as academics, historians and entrepreneurs led them to believe there was a huge opportunity to bring together people who don’t normally have space or time to interact with each other. They conceived the Initiative as a forum to build new connections and create a dialogue that encourages reflections on the long-run.
