Queen's University Belfast has been awarded more than £1m to support academics using social science-based research to tackle major societal challenges across the world over the next four years.
Welcoming the award, Professor Adrienne Scullion, Pro-Vice-Chancellor for the Faculty of Arts, Humanities and Social Sciences at Queen's said: "Queen's University is delighted to receive this investment from the ESRC, which is a fantastic endorsement of the quality of social and economic research taking place in our University.
"Over the next four years, this funding will bring our research to the next level by enabling social scientists to collaborate more with a greater range of businesses, policymakers, NGOs and civil society. It will create new opportunities for our researchers and their research to make a positive contribution to the wider society and to the economy. I am looking forward to what the next four years of ESRC funding will bring for our researchers, as we enhance and expand our impact on society."
