Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI) is committed to fostering collaborations that can produce ‘research with impact’. It supports interdisciplinarity and promotes relations with external partners in the public, private and third sectors, on a local, national and international scale. The cross-faculty support that LSSI provides for the social science at Leeds is targeted in three key areas:

  1. Developing and promoting interdisciplinary research excellence
  2. Maximising impact, knowledge exchange, and public and policy engagement
  3. Delivering skills training and capacity building opportunities in order to equip the next generation of research leaders.
