MethodsCon is a wholly in-person event that will take place over two days in Manchester (UK) on 13-14 September 2022. The theme of the event is: rethinking the boundaries of methods in health and social science research.

Following two years of online delivery, NCRM is delighted to announce a return to in-person, live events. This innovative and cross-sector meet-up is part conference, part learning opportunity, part innovation incubator. It has been designed to re-connect and re-energise people with a focus on interdisciplinary perspectives on health and social science.


MethodsCon will feature more than 30 sessions over two days. Sessions will be in three formats: Interactive Seminars; Professional Development Workshops; Innovation Incubators.

The programme also includes keynote presentations from Professor Nicky Cullum of The University of Manchester and Professor Danny Dorling of the University of Oxford.
