To bridge the gap between academic research and policy making and to provide a platform for young researchers to present insights and evidence, the OECD opens every year a call for papers on topics related to anti-corruption and integrity.
The winners of the ResearchEdge competition present their research at the Forum, both in the form of a poster at the poster market and as a 5-minute research pitch during a dedicated session.
