How Can Social Science Research Make an Impact on Local Communities?

What’s on offer?

This 90 minute virtual event will feature talks from the NINE DTP Director and a range of students, and will finish with an interactive panel discussion

What’s it about?

This online webinar and panel discussion will be given by PhD students from the ESRC funded North East and Northern Ireland doctoral training partnership (NINE DTP). The talks and discussion event will illustrate a range of projects working with, and focusing on, communities and issues linked to our local areas. The aim is to highlight the benefits of working collaboratively (between academic research and community groups) to enhance our research outcomes and make a real world impact. Our researchers will take it in turns to introduce and highlight the wide range of projects being conducted on issues of societal importance and how these projects can make a real world impact with, and on, local communities in our regions. Finally, a panel discussion will focus on key issues on how social science research can make a real world impact.
