The ESRC’s Work, Education and Skills (WES) team are exploring the potential shape of a new research agenda in our portfolio space.

We are very keen to hear from the academic, policy, business, and third-sector communities about what you think will be the big persistent and future challenges over the coming decades in the following priority areas:

  • Work: a resilient, inclusive, and sustainable labour force and market
  • Education: societal impacts on educational provision, educational inequalities, special education needs and disability, and skills for life.

For full details and the opportunity to submit your ideas, please go to our online survey ESRC horizon-scanning survey: Work, Education and Skills’ hosted on the UKRI Engagement Hub.


The survey closes on Friday 1st December.
