The main objective of the1st Conference on the Scientific Horizons of Social Sciences and Humanities was to analyse the impact of research and knowledge transfer on this group of disciplines. The meeting, attended by more than 170 people, took place on 18 March in the Aula Magna of the Historic Building of the University of Barcelona.

The conference was opened by David Pérez, professor at the Universitat Autònoma de Barcelona (UAB). He described the problems concerning assessment and knowledge transfer arisen in social sciences and humanities.

Then, some workshops took place. They were centred on the impact and the strategies that can be used to value research and transfer activities. They analysed aspects such as university rankings, the work plan for academic staff, dissemination strategies and research impact.

In the afternoon, another workshop took place. It described some specific cases of transfer and social impact. Finally, Guillermo Dorronsoro, professor at the University of Deusto (Basque Country) pronounced a lecture about the importance of generating and transferring humanistic knowledge in the 21st century.
