The Essex Life and Economy Lecture series will bring together citizens, academics, policy-makers, businesses and a range of practitioners from different sectors of the economy and areas of social life in Essex.  The lecture is organised by the Faculty of Social Sciences at the University of Essex, in collaboration with Essex County Council and the ESRC Business and Local Government Data Research Centre.
