Established in 2016, the Consumer Policy Research Centre (CPRC) is an independent, not-for-profit, consumer think-tank. We work closely with policymakers, regulators, academia, industry and the community sector to develop, translate and promote evidence-based research to inform practice and policy change.
Our mission is to create fairer markets for all Australians.
We champion new thinking to create systemic change for consumers by gathering evidence and building communities of interest to improve consumer wellbeing.
Working closely with policymakers, regulators, academia, industry and the community sector, we are strong believers in interdisciplinary research and collaboration to solve complex policy problems.
To ensure our work has the greatest impact, we take a people-centred approach to the consumer experience. Our research is informed by the voices of Australians.
Ensuring that policy recommendations are based on the facts is critical to developing effective policy that delivers on our vision.
Turning the knowledge we gather into robust, implementable policies for the public benefit, and demonstrating how those policies work in practice.
Collaboration is what our organisation is known for. It is the behaviour that is needed in order to deliver successful outcomes in our research and for our policy recommendations.
CPRC conducts policy research internally and in partnership with other agencies, supporting collaborative partnerships as an effective way to build shared understanding around policy reform issues.
We promote, translate and support the work of others in improving outcomes for consumers and welcome new collaborations with organisations and individuals working within the CPRC Research Areas.
