ESRC Festival of Social Science

ESRC Festival of Social Science logoRunning from Friday 7th March to Sunday 16th March the ESRC Festival of Social Science, organised by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), will celebrate some of the very best British social science research, highlighting the ways in which it makes a difference to all our lives.

More than 30 UK towns and cities, from Aberdeen to Bognor Regis and Belfast to Cardiff, are hosting events during the Festival. Over 90 events are being organised during the Festival ranging from conferences to workshops and debates, exhibitions, film screenings, policy briefings and much more.

Plus if you can’t make it, there are even virtual events with one taking place here about Our Favourite Social Science Blogs.

Whether it’s school children tramping through the Peak District on a ‘Moorland Walk’ or getting to grips with why economics is important; finding out how you could save money on your energy bills or exploring the impact of Alzheimer’s, this Festival has something to capture everyone’s interest.

The Festival website includes a full programme of events, so you can find out if there is something happening near you and there are more details in the full press release.
