Institute for Social Sciences Research (ISSR)
The Institute for Social Sciences Research (ISSR) brings together an inter and trans-disciplinary community of social scientists from across the University to creatively address complex social problems and build social science capacity. It does this by fostering collaboration across disciplines and engaging in knowledge exchange and dissemination activities within and beyond the academic community.
We support and enhance social science-led collaboration across five interdisciplinary research themes:
- Health and wellbeing
- Social justice and social change
- Governance, policy and regulation
- Innovation in methods and data analytics
How does ISSR work?
ISSR was founded in 2017 to promote social science-led collaborations. We focus on supporting interdisciplinary research, identifying and developing new collaborative links, and expanding current relationships across Schools. The initiatives we have brought in to help achieve this are:
- our seminar series
- funding opportunities such as our Interdisciplinary Incubator Grant and supplementary and PhD support funding
- the Global Scholar Programme
- the Annual Research Forum
If you have an idea for an initiative or project and would like support, please contact us
