WISERD Annual Conference 2013

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.
