The NISER Policy Dialogue is an annual event during which results of major NISER studies carried out by Research Working Groups in the Institute are presented to relevant stakeholders from both the private and public sectors, including policy makers, decision makers, development partners, researchers, captains of industries, technocrats, key government officials from the three tiers of government, and the general public.  This forum provides opportunity for disseminating the results of NISER studies,  and also allows for in-depth discussion on them with stakeholders, with the aim of improving their policy components, among other things. NISER Annual Policy Dialogue was formally inaugurated in 2012
