The Oxford Martin School in conjunction with with The Oxford Institute of Population, are presenting a new series of talks, featuring a number of topics around science engagement, through media, policy making and gaining trust.

This would be an excellent opportunity to hear from great speakers about science engagement.

"Drawing together high level speakers from academic, policy and media spheres, this series will consider how to combine the best in scientific evidence with new forms of creative discourse drawn from the arts and humanities. It will consider the role of our institutions and governments in recognizing and facilitating this. It will engage those from the across the spectrum of science and social science, the arts and humanities with  government, the private sector, and civil society   in open debate and discussion around significant scientific advances and their implications."
