Public Engagement - opportunity
The British Science Association are now accepting proposals for the British Science Festival 2019. You can apply via two calls:
This year the Festival went to Hull, and there was a huge range of events and activities hosted, including yoga sessions, museum lates, lively discussions, and even a robot petting zoo
The Festival will be in Coventry from 10-13 September 2019, hosted by the University of Warwick. Researchers from any institution are welcome to apply, so do!
The BSA are looking for proposals from across the scientific spectrum and beyond. Festival content should be aimed at non-specialist adults (i.e. aged 16+) with a broad interest in science. Creative formats and drop-in activities are welcomed.
Proposal deadline: 18 February 2019
Every year the BSA ask for nominations for the seven Award Lectureships available to promising early career academics, skilled at engaging people with their research. These Award Lectures aim to promote open and informed discussion of science and related disciplines. The selected candidates will have the opportunity to present their winning Award Lecture at the 2019 Festival.
Everyone is encouraged to get in touch to discuss their nomination prior to submission.
Nomination deadline: 7 January 2019
