The PRI Academic Network Week was hosted across five days between 13-17 September 2021.

The event brought together the latest high-quality evidence and insights in responsible investment practices in an accessible way and aimed to bridge the gap between academic researchers and investors. The findings were presented by their authors and discussed by investment practitioners and academics to offer feedback, to understand the work in the context of the literature and in relation to real world practice.
