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.
Understanding Society and the Wales Institute of Social & Economic Research, Data & Methods (WISERD), University of Cardiff, are running two training events designed to develop your knowledge and skills in using large scale longitudinal studies.
Research on poverty, inequality and big data will be presented by academics from Cardiff University’s School of Social Sciences. Lead by our panel discussants the session will then open up debate with participants to further explore these topics.
This event will bring together leading academics from the UK and US to discuss the current state of play regarding data linkage and the likely future direction of developments in this area
