Thursday 13 December 2018

 
Location Kings Place, London

As the SRA turns 40 we take stock and look ahead.  With the advent of innovative techniques, tools and tech, social research has transformed in recent decades.  But with advancement has come data misuse and widespread public scepticism - so the profession faces continuing rapid change and rising uncertainty.  And the landscape of social research - its methods, policy focus, funding, ways of working - continues to evolve.

The conference will explore how researchers can adapt to these changes, while also asking what are the enduring principles of research that will guide good practice and maintain public confidence for the next 40 years?

Plenary speakers:

- Sir John Curtice (Strathclyde University and NatCen)

- Jennifer Rubin (Executive Chair, ESRC)

- Trish Greenhalgh (Professor of Primary Care and Health Science, Oxford University)
