The Campaign for Social Science is to hold a roadshow at the University of Exeter on 1 March to report on its progress over the last two years.

The roadshow will be held from 12 noon to 2pm in Lecture Room 2 in the Queen’s Building and will also be streamed using a video link to the Peter Lanyon Seminar Room 8 on the Cornwall campus.

The speakers are Professor Michael Harloe, Acting Campaign Chair, and Ceridwen Roberts, Campaign Board member.

The University’s Vice-Chancellor, Professor Sir Steve Smith AcSS, will welcome guests and introduce the speakers.

The question and answer session at the end will be chaired by Professor Debra Myhill AcSS, the Associate Dean for Research and Knowledge Transfer in the College of Social Sciences and International Studies.

The event is open to all those interested in the future of social science. To book a free place see: http://cfssexeter.eventbrite.com/

This will be the 18th roadshow the Campaign has held since it was launched in 2011. The roadshows are staged to emphasise the value and importance of social science and to encourage support and donations.

The Campaign gives social science a voice by working collaboratively across the whole of the social science community, both within academia and outside.

The Campaign has four main objectives: informing and influencing public policy with social science evidence; keeping the media informed with comment on social science issues; speaking with authority on the state of social science; promoting the benefits of investment in social science education and research.
