The Impact of Social Science Research Workshop

The Impact of Social Science Research Workshop

Date: 25th September 2014

Time: 9:30 am – 5pm

Location: The Moller Centre, Study Centre Room 10, Cambridge

This one day workshop is funded under the ESRC Pilot Impact Acceleration Account (IAA) at Cambridge.

The idea for the day is to begin with a short overview of the landscape and characteristics of social science impact activity in UK and then have a number of social science impact cases presented, which will be drawn from a variety of UK Universities.

Cases will be drawn from IAA funded activity or other social science impact cases. The focus will be on lessons to be learned for implementing and evaluating impact activities in a range of Social Science settings and using a variety of Impact Pathways.
