It is the reference group for the CIES research needs of the public sector. It seeks to strengthen the link between the academic community and the Peruvian State.

- Presidential Academic Dialogue Programme
The Presidential Academic Dialogue Programme involves a series of evidence-based debates on key policy topics. The first dialogue was on microfinance and the next will be on decentralisation. After the President proposes the debate topic, CIES summons a plural and multidisciplinary team of researchers, technical experts and practitioners to carry out analysis and identify key policy messages and recommendations. The dialogue is then organised as a closed meeting at the Government Palace, chaired by the President and gathering a selected group of high-level public sector officials and experts. Note that the aim is not to achieve any specific policy changes, so as to avoid vested interests, lobbies or particular agendas.
- Private Sector
Since 2006, the Consortium has prepared a policy brief for the Annual Entrepreneurs Conference (CADE) giving us more visibility among the business community.
Furthermore, CIES has already installed a Private Sector Consultative Council, which gathers CEO or top Officers from large extractive, finance or service enterprises. A further step in building trust with the private sector has been Scotiabank´s sponsorship to CIES Annual Research Competitions 2008 and 2009 by awarding three junior researchers up to 15,000 USD per year. .
