Public Engagement and Social Science Research Challenges and Emerging Solutions

Committee Rooms 1 and 2, Glamorgan Building, Cardiff University
Thursday 22 June 2017, 12:30 pm - 4:30 pm


The Administrative Data Research Network (ADRN) was established to make administrative data that is routinely collected by government departments accessible for the purposes of research. However, the content of such data is personal, confidential and sometimes can be highly sensitive in nature. It is therefore imperative that the public has confidence in how such data is being utilised. This workshop explores issues surrounding the importance of public engagement in social science research - both in relation to Big Data and beyond. The workshop will consider the various mechanisms that have been developed by different organisations to facilitate involvement of the public throughout the lifecycle of research projects.

We would be delighted if you could join us for the workshop. To confirm your attendance and secure your place at this limited availability event please visit our Eventbrite page or contact with your details and any special dietary requirements you may have.
