The Coventry University Festival of Social Science: 6 – 17 November 2023

The Festival of Social Science (FoSS) offers a fascinating insight into some of the country’s leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives – both now and in the future. Discover how it shapes public policy and contributes to making the economy more competitive, as well as giving people a better understanding of 21st-century society.

The Coventry University festival features a mix of online and face-to-face events, held across Coventry city centre and the university campus. Participants will be able to take part and hear about social science research at the festival’s many engaging events.

Coventry University’s programme of FoSS events are free to attend and designed for *people of all ages


From using game design to imagine and build sustainable cities to testing an app designed to help teenage girls open discussions around mental health, there is something for everyone.

There are 12 events taking place between 6-14 November across Coventry city centre and the university campus. Please see below for event listings and further information.

*Some events are more appropriate for families whereas others are for professionals in the workplace, with each event stating whether it will be held in-person, online or in a hybrid format.
