SRA annual conference 2016: Making the links: New directions for social researchers

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

The SRA annual conference is the only UK forum bringing together social researchers from all sectors and disciplines to share knowledge and ideas, to debate our most pressing professional issues, and, of course, to meet and talk.

This year we focus on collaboration - building strong connections within and outside our industry. Traditional boundaries between research methods have softened, while hard and fast divisions between academics, practitioners and policy researchers are blurring. Researchers increasingly collaborate with professionals in other fields, and new opportunities arise as technology redraws the limits on data collecting, data sharing and research dissemination. What challenges does this new landscape bring?

Plenary speakers:

  • ● Sharon Witherspoon, Director of Policy at the Academy of Social Science: Keynote speaker
  • ● Gareth Morrell, Head of Research at Madano
  • ● Siobhan Campbell, Deputy Chief Scientific Advisor, Head of Central Research Team at Department of Transport
  • ● Tony McEnery, Director of Research at ESRC; Distinguished Professor of English Language and Linguistics at Lancaster University
  • ● Peter Jackson, Professor of Human Geography, University of Sheffield
