Harnessing the Vital Role of Social Sciences in Addressing Contemporary Challenges – Leeds Social Sciences Institute Event
This event will bring together those who research and teach social sciences with those who benefit from social science knowledge and understanding as research ‘users’, professional and (ex-)students. It will address a number of questions: what are the challenges that the social sciences now face and need to confront? What do the social sciences have to offer? What are the opportunities for the social sciences to contribute more centrally to addressing today’s grand challenges? How can we champion the social sciences so that they continue to play a central role in Schools, Colleges, and Universities in teaching and research?
This event is open to all.REGISTER HERE FOR THIS EVENT
