Organised around 15 research themes addressing the broad areas of health, public services and regulation, social change and security, the KISS-DTC will provide innovative and interdisciplinary research training, connecting the social sciences with the health and natural sciences as well as the arts and humanities. A placement and knowledge-exchange programme, plus training collaborations with learned societies and other universities, will help to establish the KISS-DTC as a national hub for interdisciplinary social science.
The Principal will be hosting a launch event to showcase the engagement of social science research and training at King’s with today’s key societal challenges.
The event will be held in the River Room (2nd floor, King’s Building, Strand Campus), on 17 January 2011 from 17.30-19.00, and will be followed by a drinks reception.
