Take part

Do you want to hold an event as part of this year's festival?  We welcome applications from staff and students to participate in Thinking Futures 2015.  

ESRC Festival of Social Science

Thinking Futures is part of the Economic and Social Research Council's national Festival of Social Science.

The Thinking Futures festival, which takes place on the 7 - 14 November 2015, aims to share and celebrate research from the University of Bristol's Faculty of Social Sciences and Law. The programme comprises a wide variety of events for the general public, schools, policy-makers and third sector organisations, held in Bristol. Engage with our researchers and see how the social sciences inform key debates and advances in policy and practice for governments, education, charities, health services, legal systems, and public services around the globe.

Are you interested in holding an event as part of Thinking Futures?  We welcome expressions of interest from staff and students to be part of the 2015 festival; the deadline for applications is 5pm on the 29 May. More information and the application form can be found on the Centre for Public Engagement website.
