The Institute of Social and Economic Research, Faculty of Humanities and Social Sciences, of Memorial University of Newfoundland was established in 1961 to foster and undertake research into the many social and economic questions arising from the particular historic, geographic, and economic circumstances of Newfoundland and Labrador.

While maintaining its focus on Newfoundland and Labrador, ISER supports comparative research. It encourages interdisciplinary as well as discipline-based research, and basic research as well as work with more immediate application.

ISER's studies and research projects are pursued through a system of fellowships and research grants for approved projects. ISER also has grants available to support conferences that fall within its mandate.
