Invitation to attend Social Science in the FSA event
Registration is now open for the Symposium on Social Science in the Food Standards Agency being held as part of the ESRC Festival of Social Science. The event will take places in London on 6 November 2017.
The symposium offers an excellent opportunity for anyone in the social science community keen to hear about how social science directly informs real life policy making in a government context, learn about the work and priorities of the FSA and engage directly with its officials, researchers and academic reviewer.
It will showcase our current work and the future direction of our social science research. You’ll hear about innovative and collaborative projects as well as the outcome of the recent review of our work by King's College London, and find out about the research-policy interface and how you can engage.
This day-long workshop will run as an interactive symposium including presentations from a range of speakers, discussions, a networking lunch and post-event drinks.
Workshop sessions will focus on:
- protecting consumer interests in relation to food
- ensuring food is safe and what it says it is
- being an excellent, accountable and modern regulator
Read the full agenda for the event.
To attend the event, register online via Eventbrite
