Festival of Social Science - 22 October to 13 November

This year's festival is delivered alongside Swansea University, Bangor University and the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) around the theme of “lifelong wellbeing”.

The festival takes place at a whole host of universities across the UK as part of the ESRC’s national Festival of Social Science, providing an exciting opportunity to celebrate and raise awareness of the outstanding social science research at Cardiff University.
Join us as we celebrate and share our impactful research and knowledge that informs the development of policies, services and innovation, and addresses major societal challenges in Wales, the UK and internationally.

The Festival of Social Science is made possible thanks to funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), which is part of UK Research and Innovation (UKRI).
