  • CPC at BSPS 2019

    The British Society of Population Studies Annual Conference 2019 is taking place at Cardiff University 09-11 September 2019. CPC members will be out in force to represent the excellent population research undertaken over the last year. From PhD students to Directors, CPC members at all career points will be enjoying presenting and sharing knowledge with other attendees to the conference. It is an excellent opportunity to network and collaborate with others, and an important occasion for our researchers.

    2019 is our 10th year of funding ann we are delighted to sponsor the BSPS poster session as one of our "birthday" year events. To help us celebrate, we are inviting attendees to join us for drinks, nibbles and a slice of cake in the Conference Centre at 18:30 on Monday 09 September.

    CPC Director Professor Jane Falkingham discusses why we are so excited to share our anniversary with attendees:

    “I am delighted to be coming up to such an important milestone. The last 10 years have seen many changes in how we live as a society, and those changes are happening more rapidly than ever before. Our research achievements so far have helped us to better understand the drivers of change and contribute to the national and international conversation on how to respond.”

    Funded for a further three years, CPC represents the ESRC's continued investment in population research. The importance of which was recently highlighted in their 2019 Delivery Plan, and can be seen from the recent award of £708,000 to a new CPC study on current fertility trends.

    Attendees of BSPS 2019 can hear more about CPC research in the sessions below, and you can follow our live tweets on twitter, @CPCpopulation or by following the event #BSPS2019.
