The LSSI is a large, vibrant research Institute that works to support and enhance the Social Sciences at Leeds. It fosters interdisciplinary and international research collaborations, promotes relations with external partners in the public, private and third sectors and builds capacity through the provision of training and skills development for the next generation of research leaders.
We provide cross faculty support for the social sciences focusing on three key priorities:
- Developing interdisciplinary research excellence
- Maximising impact, knowledge exchange and user engagement
- Ensure capacity building and training for early career researchers
