Social science research makes a huge difference to our lives. It influences everything including our health and wellbeing, the economy, and the cities which we live in. It affects us all.
Some of the country’s leading experts are based at Sheffield’s two universities. Sheffield researchers are breaking boundaries by working across disciplines and borders – with communities, businesses, policy makers and other groups to make a difference.
The reach of this research is truly international and lasting, helping us understand the world and the societies within it better, so that we can solve global challenges and improve people’s lives.
The festival is a unique opportunity to engage with these experts and talk to them about the issues that matter.
There are events for all ages and interests, including public lectures and debates, film screenings, exhibitions and more.
