When & Where
Campaign for Social Science
The Campaign for Social Science was set up in 2011 to raise the profile of social science with the government, the media and the wider public.
In Spring 2015 we are visiting universities around the UK to promote the recommendations of our pre-election report The Business of People - #bizofpeople. We want to engage as many social scientists as possible in our mission to forge a unified and amplified voice for social science that will increase its impact and influence.
