Partnerships and Engagement

Business and Engagement activity at the Department of Social Sciences.

We are a leading centre for energising creative practice and academic study. By working in partnership with a broad range of stakeholders, we seek to nurture ‘home-grown’ talent and, through meaningful engagement, business innovation, and knowledge creation at the highest level, support and grow the economic, social, cultural and intellectual capital of the region and beyond.

A primary principle of our Engagement and Enterprise activity is to have a real-world focus reflected in the scope of the activity we undertake with external stakeholders so that we are better placed and able to respond to social need locally, nationally and globally, which has the potential to generate ambitious outcomes, and stimulate creativity, income and innovation.

Within the Department our staff have a wide-ranging expertise and we are open to working collaboratively to design and deliver training and CPD programmes. Social science staff co-produce knowledge with partners in the public and voluntary and community sectors. We have a particular expertise in evaluation work.
