Social Research and Air Quality: STFC, Social Sciences and SAQN

Tuesday 26th January 2021, 12.30 – 14.30, online

In this interactive, online session, we heard from social scientists researching air quality, and from STFC departments with the potential to support these types of research. Participants discussed how to work across social and physical sciences, and how to break down disciplinary barriers to enable better collaboration. A recording of the presentations and panel discussion is available on the event page, along with copies of the slides.

Our first Collaboration Building Workshop took place in November 2020, in an innovative online setting. Further information about the projects we funded will be added to the event page in due course. The next Collaboration Building Workshop will take place in 2021.

Collaboration Building Workshops offer a space for exploration of new research ideas and the application of STFC capabilities to air quality challenges. We want to bring together people from different backgrounds to work together and think innovatively about challenges and solutions in air quality.
