Cambridge Global Challenges


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 the ESRC's science in society strategy and its commitment to promoting awareness of UK social science research to new audiences.

Social science research makes a difference. Discover how it shapes public policy and contributes to making the economy more competitive, as well as giving people a better understanding of 21st century society. From big ideas to the most detailed observations, social science affects us all everyday - at work, in school, when raising children, within our communities, and even at the national level. Everyone - from school children to politicians - can take part in and hear about social science research in the Festival's many engaging events.

This celebration of the social sciences takes place across the UK with over 300 free to attend events across the UK - via public debates, conferences, workshops, interactive seminars, film screenings, exhibitions and much more.
