EGAP is a research network for scholars and practitioners who are actively engaged in designing and implementing field experiments on the topics of governance, politics, and institutions. The group meets twice a year, at rotating meeting locations, and is funded by the Hewlett Foundation.
The group’s inaugural meeting, April 24-25, 2009, was hosted by the Institution for Social and Policy Studies at Yale University. This year's second meeting, October 16-17, 2009, is at Columbia University. The first 2010 meeting will take place at Trinity College Dublin.
