AESIS: The Impact of Social Sciences & Humanities on Society

October 17 @ 8:30 am - October 18 @ 5:00 pm

AESIS is proud to announce its next edition on “The Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities on Society,” right next to Capitol Hill, in the National Museum of The American Indian, Washington DC. Motivated by science policy developments of recent years, the AESIS Network started in 2017 to organize the first international conference on Societal Impact of Social Sciences and Humanities (SSH), and the signing of the Cardiff Statement on optimizing this impact. Building further on the positive outcome of the SSH 2018 conference in Copenhagen, continuation of the event was decided for the following purposes: to restate and champion the fundamental role that the social sciences and humanities play in society, and to call for an expanded role for the social sciences and humanities in tackling social and cultural problems through academic research.

Alan Leshner (CEO, Emeritus of the American Association for the Advancement of Science) will be chairing the conference. The event aims to foster an international discussion on:

(1) How to define the social impact of social sciences and humanities;

(2) How to measure this impact;

(3) How engaging with government, industry and the public as a whole may stimulate the impact of social sciences and humanities.

The event will bring together experts working as:

-R&D evaluators;
-University managers;
-Policy makers;
-Other stakeholders or impact
