The purpose of this webinar is to make an active contribution to the wider debate taking place around how the value and success of social science commercialisation should be measured. The discussion will therefore explore why a different approach to measurement is so important for the social sciences, the range of metrics that might be used to evaluate commercialisation in this area and what difference this could make to those who are seeking to demonstrate the value of social science commercialisation.

•Professor Sir Ian Diamond, National Statistician and Chief Executive, UK Statistics Authority (UKSA)
•Professor Susana Mourato, Department of Geography & Environment, London School of Economics and Political Sciences
