A seminar series designed to connect academic knowledge with pressing policy agendas

Leeds Social Sciences Institute (LSSI) and the Department for Work and Pensions (DWP) developed a seminar series to help build richer connections between the academic and policy worlds.

The seminar series: Linking Leeds, has now moved online and provides an opportunity to hear from both leading Social Scientists at the University of Leeds and other universities as well as prominent analysts, strategists and policy makers from the Department for Work and Pensions. The DWP are currently revising their Areas of Research Interest but are particularly interested in previous ARIs that are currently impacted by COVID-19.

The webinars are held every month via Microsoft Teams and consist of a 30-45 minute presentation followed by a 30 minute Q&A/discussion session.

The upcoming seminar dates will be available soon. If you are interested in participating either as a speaker or attendee or know any colleagues who are interested, please contact Camilla McCartney, LSSI Engagement Officer
