Invitation: Exploring Collaboration between FASoS and IDS, on 28 June

With the launch of the new BA Digital Society, FASoS is reinforcing its position as the hub at UM for Social Science and Humanities research into the Digital Society and Digitalisation! With this in mind, our colleagues from the Interfaculty Institute for Data Sciences (IDS) have organised an Introductory meeting to explore opportunities for further collaborations and partnerships between FASoS and IDS. Read below for information and registration.
