Social and Behavioral Science as R&D
December 1, 2023
As the Council’s Centennial year draws to a close, this convening of the member institutions in the College and University Fund for the Social Sciences will bring together leaders of universities, philanthropic foundations, and public funders of science to celebrate the achievements of 100 years of socially impactful social and behavioral science, and explore new opportunities for social and behavioral science R&D to find cost-effective and scalable solutions to our most pressing societal challenges.
This one-day convening will feature a conversation about opportunities for universities to better support inclusive regional economic growth; new university/researcher partnerships to find interventions that increase diversity in the least diverse academic disciplines; and, as a capstone to the Council’s Centennial year, a conversation among the Council’s seven founding disciplines about 100 years of socially impactful work in the social and behavioral sciences, as well as opportunities for further advances.
This convening will be held on Friday, December 1, 2023 at the Harold Pratt House in New York City. The program will run from 11:00am-5:00pm, with a reception immediately following from 5:00-7:00pm.
We look forward to sharing more details about the conference program and speakers in the coming months.
