Social Science and the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology
9.00 – 12.30, Thursday 14th November 2013
Barn 1 & 2, Middlesex University, Hendon Campus
What is it?
A morning seminar in which Dr Abbi Hobbs from the Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) Social Science Section will tell us more about her work and how we can contribute. There will then be two panels during which an exciting array of Middlesex’s social science research groups will give short presentations about their work. There will be plenty of opportunity for networking and discussion.
Who should come?
All members of staff and PhD students with an interest in social science and its application to parliamentarians.
Why it will be useful?
This is an opportunity not only to develop links within the University, but also to showcase the outstanding quality and diversity of social science work that is occurring at Middlesex. The Social Science Section at the POST has only just been launched so this is a great opportunity to build connections and influence their work from the outset.
