The Centre for Time Use Research invites researchers, journalists, policy makers, and all interested parties to attend our two day workshop on time use in Britain.

At this two-day event CTUR will introduce four new data sources, including the release of UK 2014-15 data, and present a first look at our initial findings. The data launch will be followed by presentations from leading academic researchers, and roundtable discussions which aim to provide a unique opportunity for delegates to engage in cross-disciplinary dialogue.

This will include discussions on Changes In Young People's Time Use Patterns In The UK (1974-2015), British and Millennium Cohort Studies, and talks on themes of Health, Media, Technology, and Education. The day will conclude with a keynote speech from Professor Robert D. Putnam of Harvard University.

Day 2: “Great Britain’s Great Day”. This will include the introduction of the new UK Time Use Survey, and discussions on Work & Leisure, Health and Policy, and Collecting the UK 2014-15 Time Diary Survey.
