ESRC funds research into the big social and economic issues facing us today. We are part of UK Research and Innovation and receive most of our funding through the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS). We support independent, high quality, relevant social science research.

Social science aids growth, promotes innovation, informs policy and shapes society, making people’s lives better.
