Governance Groups

LSSI Steering Group

The Steering Group oversees the work of LSSI. It reviews and agrees priorities for activities which will:

  • Foster a creative and intellectually stimulating environment for social scientists in Leeds to help them innovate, collaborate and develop visionary research
  • Provide co-ordinated training for social scientists at all career stages
  • To respond to new opportunities for funding for research or innovation and to stimulate responses to those opportunities and, where appropriate, coordinate the preparation of large scale cross-institutional bids (with Research and Innovation Service).
  • Maximise internal and external collaboration and strategic alliances within and beyond the social sciences, and will act as the first point of contact for N8 initiatives.
  • Communicate and showcase (both internally and externally) the social sciences at Leeds including our distinctive strengths, expertise, activity, new opportunities, supporting new staff, hosting major international events etc.
  • Provide a six month update on the social sciences action plan to Faculties and Research & Innovation Board, plus an annual update on progress to Faculty Management Group (via the Social Sciences Strategic Oversight Group)
