Another Hello From…

September 26, 2007

OK, my turn for the introductions. My name is Michelle Dodson and I work for the Economic and Social Research Council, one of the three funding agencies supporting the development of this exciting new initiative. I have work at the ESRC for nearly five years now and my role there is to develop and commission new research activity that will help us achieve our mission:• To advance knowledge and provide trained social scientists who meet the needs of users and beneficiaries, thereby contributing to the economic competitiveness of the United Kingdom, the effectiveness of public services and policy, and the quality of life;• To promote and support, by any means, high-quality basic, strategic and applied research and related postgraduate training in the social sciences;• To provide advice on, and disseminate, knowledge; and promote public understanding of the social sciences.Its great to be part of the team. We see this as a unique opportunity for us to support the bringing together of different academic and industrial communities to build an interdisciplinary knowledge base as well as innovative solutions in this extremely challenging area.
