To support the launch of a landmark study in evidence-based analysis of social science impacts, The Impact of Social Sciences: How Academics and their Research make a Difference, The LSE Public Policy Group and SAGE are holding an evening panel discussion with elite experts from government, civil society, business and the media to debate how academic research is translated and utilized in their discipline to further progress their sector.

The result of a three year study conducted by the LSE Public Policy Group and sponsored by the Higher Education Funding Council of England (HEFCE) and published by SAGE, The Impact of Social Sciences, places UK-based university social sciences research in profile, providing an invaluable insight into how social science affects us all and how is supports our economy, our society and so many other areas of our lives.

A sample of the research, “Visualizing the Data” can be accessed here.

The event will hear from an elite panel of experts from government, business, civil society and the media, and will discuss the benefits and barriers to utilizing academic research in their sectors, and the salience and value of social science expertise.

 Confirmed speakers include:

  • Mark Easton, Home Editor, BBC News
  • Penny Lawrence, International Programmes Director, Oxfam GB
  • Aileen Murphie, Director, Local Government VFM, National Audit Office
  • Jeff Patmore, former Head of Strategic University Research & Collaboration, British Telecom
  • Professor Lord Stern, Chair, President, British Academy

Leading up to the event, the LSE Impact of Social Sciences blog will also be covering key themes and areas of debate from the text. Join in on the debate at http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/impactofsocialsciences/ and at #impactsocsci.
