Professor Emilia Del Bono has been appointed as the new Director of the ESRC Research Centre on Micro-Social Change (MiSoC) at our Institute for Social and Economic Research.

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC), part of UK Research and Innovation, recently awarded MiSoC a further £6.2 million for the next five years of research.

University of Essex Vice Chancellor, Professor Anthony Forster, said: “Our mission at Essex is to undertake research which has a real, significant impact on the world and improves people’s lives, and the MiSoC research agenda is an important part of this. I am delighted that Professor Del Bono, as an internationally renowned economist, will be leading our crucial work in collaboration with experts from across the UK and the world, to explain how people really live their lives and how society is changing.”
