NIBS PhD student, Sarah Bowen, undertook a UKRI policy internship with the Behavioural Insights Team within the Department of Health (PHEBI) for 3 months during July 2020. 

During the internship Sarah collaborated on many projects using behavioural science applied to health improvement decisions.  One policy brief which was sent to the Cabinet Office, summarised current evidence on financial incentives and the uptake of healthy behaviours. She presented work in the cross-government behavioural insights network and at an Air Quality conference run by PHE.  Other responsibilities included producing policy briefs and literature reviews; conducting focus groups; contributing to multiple academic papers; and improving her knowledge of the application of behavioural insights in public policy
