Tuesday 25th and Wednesday 26th June 2013
University of South Wales
Wales' largest social science conference took place on 25th and 26th June at the University of South Wales.
This annual conference showcases policy relevant research in Wales and attracts colleagues from academic, policy, public, private and third sectors.
The 2013 conference was the fourth annual WISERD conference, and follows on from three successful conferences, held in Cardiff, Swansea and Bangor Universities. Bringing practitioners, policy makers and social scientists together, WISERD conferences have become established as one of the most important events in the social science calendar.
This summit will mainly discuss existing and possible future labour market interventions in response to large-scale job losses across traditional industries (deindustrialization) in Wales, with a particular focus on the North West Wales labour market.
This event is an introductory hands-on session aimed at those in the voluntary sector with an interest in either using or doing research.
As part of the ESRC Festival of Social Sciences 2015 we will demonstrate the new version of the WISERD Data Portal (WDP) with the participation of an exemplar Civil Society organisation, focussing on how the Portal can be used by third sector organisations for Civil Society research.
