Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series (KESS)
'Promoting evidence-led policy and law-making within Northern Ireland' – that is the underlying aim of the upcoming Knowledge Exchange Seminar Series, collectively sponsored by the Queen's University of Belfast, University of Ulster and the Assembly's Research and Information Service (RaISe). In an attempt to encourage debate and improve understanding, the Series will provide an opportunity for the presentation of local research findings about diverse social issues faced in various sectors, such as health, social development, education, children/young people and older people.
Seminars will be free of charge and the first series will run on Thursdays from 22 March through 05 July 2012. The second series will run from 04 October 2012 to 16 May 2013. Each seminar will take place from 1.30-3.30pm in Parliament Buildings. Refreshments will be served.
Further details of the Seminars, including Briefing Papers and podcasts will be placed on this website, on the QUB School of Sociology, Social Policy and Social Work web pages and on the UU Institute for Research in Social Sciences (IRiSS) website, as they become available.
