Huddersfield - Institute for Research in Citizenship and Applied Human Sciences

Comprising five diverse Research Centres, the IRCAHS was formally opened by Professor Laurie Taylor in early 2012. Within the Institute our primary aims are to facilitate, support and strengthen research collaboration across social and human sciences, and to build upon the existing research excellence in those areas at the University of Huddersfield.

Informed as we are by the latest developments in key areas of social and health sciences, and in bringing together multi-disciplinary approaches, our work directly addresses many of the major health, social and political problems and issues facing the wider contemporary society.
