How to create research with impact: SRA 40th lecture (Belfast)

In this free evening lecture to celebrate the SRA’s 40th year, Kathryn Torney, data journalist and Editor at The Detail investigative news website in Belfast, will talk about the importance of impact in research. Her advice includes not bewildering the reader with jargon, considering visuals, planning ahead and catering for different audiences. Kathryn encourages researchers to do things differently, to collaborate with others, push the boundaries, be creative and - most importantly of all - focus on producing work that matters and can’t be ignored.

The role of research in the Wellbeing of Future Generations Act: SRA 40th lecture (Cardiff)

The Well-being of Future Generations Act (Wales) came into effect in April 2016, and with it established the role of Future Generations Commissioner for Wales. The role of the Commissioner is to ensure that public bodies in Wales covered by the Act are taking account of the long term, and that they do not compromise the ability of tomorrow's generations to meet their own needs. How do we think, talk about, and plan for the future? How do we encourage discourse that moves beyond abstract concepts?

In this free evening lecture, Sophie Howe will explore the role that research can play in improving all aspects of our social, economic, environmental and cultural well-being, and the vital importance of bringing together policy and research.

SRA Annual Conference 2018: Adapting to change - where next for social research?

£70 to £135 for SRA members, £190 for non-members

As the SRA turns 40 we take stock and look ahead.  With the advent of innovative techniques, tools and technology, 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.

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?
