Social sciences to take centre stage in debate on global grand challenges
London, 1 November 2017
Springer Nature is joining with the Economic and Social Research Council to explore the role social science research is playing in tackling some of the global grand challenges. At an event to mark the launch of the 15th annual ESRC Festival of Social Science, a high-profile panel of social science experts will look at the important role research plays beyond academia, discussing how research can address issues such as climate change, economics, race, migration, health and interdisciplinarity.
