ESRC Festival of Social Science

Festival banner

We are pleased to confirm that the 2014 ESRC Festival of Social Science will be taking place across the UK from 1-8 November.

Congratulations to all successful applicants for sponsorship. The standard was extremely high this year, forcing some very tough decisions on the panel, but we hope this will allow us to offer both a topically and geographically diverse Festival. Applicants of non-sponsored events will be informed by 4 July.

If you have applied via the Universities of Aberdeen, Bristol, Birmingham, Exeter or Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam University, or Queen's University Belfast, they will inform you of the outcome of your application to them.

Please email if you would like any additional information or assistance.
