2016 Conference - Galway: Today and Tomorrow

To mark the fiftieth (50th) anniversary of the founding of the Social Sciences Research Centre (SSRC) a conference will take place on 20th October in the ILAS Centre at NUI Galway. The theme of the conference will be; 'Galway: Today and Tommorrow'. It is anticipated that this conference will provide an excellent opportunity for the University, through the work of the SSRC, to reach out to the general public in Galway City and the surrounding rural regions. The conference will provide a crucial forum for a broad range of public actors and representatives, relevant key decision-makers, NGOs, community organisations and activists, and civic society groups to share ideas relating to the future direction of Galway.
