    Event details

    This conference will provide an opportunity for the genomics social science community to take stock and celebrate its successes. Through reviewing the findings of research undertaken to date it will question what has been discovered, the implications of these results, and the new questions they raise. We aim to engage associated stakeholders and policy makers in debating in a dialogue about the future direction of social science research.

    There will be international plenary and keynote speakers discussing:

    • Engaging stakeholders in social science research
    • Policies for sustainability
    • Media representations

    Other key themes will include:
