Sherwell Centre

While the world is more inter-connected, culturally, socially and economically than ever before, the sheer speed and impact of globalisation, together with the after effects of 2008/09 financial crisis, has bred considerable discontent, international crises and extraordinary turns in public politics.

The Institute for Social, Policy and Enterprise Research (iSPER) invites researchers, policy makers, entrepreneurs, artists, students, businesses, charities, public bodies and all who are interested to this interactive exploration and showcase of the diverse ways in which academic research responds to this question.

A keynote address from Carole Parkes, Professor of Global Issues and Responsible Management, Winchester University, provides a central focus from which five of iSPER’s Themed Research Groups will follow with specialist topics including: Managing People in an Age of Uncertainty, The Human Element in Shipping, and Climate Change Criminology and more.

A buffet lunch and a Research Exhibition then provide the backdrop for guests and collaborators to network, including an interactive VR exhibit from iSPER's local-global crime history Initiative, CHITCHAT.
