£65 to £130 for SRA members, £175 for non-members

** This event is now full. To go on the waiting list please email admin[at]the-sra[dot]org.uk **

The climate of suspicion towards ‘experts’ has put many researchers on the defensive. Is it enough simply to assert the value of rigorous methods, or should we be checking, sharpening and improving our tools? If ‘post-truth’ carries real meaning then the pressure is on researchers to find a positive response - such as clearly communicating our findings and why they matter; and demonstrating how high standards in design, conduct and analysis are built in to our research.

Plenary speakers:

  • John Pullinger, National Statistician: Keynote speaker
  • Will Moy, Director of Full Fact
  • Suzanne Hall, Head of Qualitative Research, Ipsos MORI
  • Professor Tim May, Director of Research, Sheffield Methods Institute
  • Another voice with David Walker
