A conference bringing together researchers, policy makers, professional societies, evaluators, funders, private sector players, and a variety of stakeholders to talk about impact in the social sciences and humanities takes place later this month in Washington, D.C.
On October 17 and 18, the Consortium of Social Science Associations (COSSA) and the Network for Advancing & Evaluating the Societal Impact of Science (AESIS Network) will present the 3rd Edition of the Societal Impact of the Social Sciences and Humanities Conference.
Attendees will tackle questions such as:
- How to define the social impact of social sciences and humanities;
- How to measure this impact;
- How engaging with government, industry and the public as a whole may stimulate the impact of social sciences and humanities.
The event takes places at the National Museum of The American Indian. Alan Leshner, interim CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, chairs the event. A draft programme is available online. Click here to register.
