10 Things you wish you didn't know about elections (and what to do about them)
Ever wondered how we are targeted and manipulated by social media and how bots are trying to influence voter behaviour? Explore our interactive case study of ERC funded-research by Prof. Philip Howard
Over the last decade, Oxford Social Sciences have shown an outstanding track record of attracting significant funding from the European Research Council (ERC). The ERC funds exceptional individual scientists to carry out high-risk, high-gain research at the frontiers of knowledge.
On 16 March 2017 Professor Roger Goodman, Head of the Social Sciences Division hosted an event to mark the 10th anniversary of the ERC. This event celebrated the world-leading research and researchers supported by these grants.
Reflecting the diversity of social sciences research at Oxford, the programme of talks encompassed wide and varied topics. Each of the speakers is the Principal Investigator leading at least one ERC award and their TED-style talks focus on powerful ideas generated and explored by their projects.
This event was organised by the Social Sciences Division’s Research and Impact Team. For more info about this event contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
