The ESRC Festival of Social Science is a celebration of the social sciences.
It began life in 2002 as Social Science Week – a collection of around 25 events, mainly seminars aimed towards an academic audience. Over the years Social Science Week has grown to a much larger and more inclusive ‘festival’ of activities, aimed at policymakers, business, the public and young people.
The Festival of Social Science offers a fascinating insight into some of the country’s leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives – both now and in the future.
It is a key element of our commitment to promote awareness of UK social science research to new audiences.
