Knowledge Frontiers Symposia

A series of symposia supporting the development of the next generation of talent within the social sciences and the humanities, and promoting interdisciplinary and international research collaboration.

The aim of this series of activities is to enhance the skills and capabilities of early career researchers in the UK and overseas, and to encourage them to develop new international links and research partnerships. The symposia seek to bring cross-regional and multi-disciplinary insights to bear on issues of research and global significance, and provide opportunities for the creation of new networks and long-term collaborations.
