In 2016, the Economic & Social Research Council (ESRC) funded the London Interdisciplinary Social Science Doctoral Training Partnership (LISS DTP), led by King’s College London, in partnership with Imperial College London and Queen Mary University of London. It provides social science research students with a unique opportunity to join and develop a research community that springs from the interface between the social science disciplines with health and medicine, the natural and physical sciences, engineering, and the arts and humanities.
