BA and ESRC Science in Society Seminars

Linking scicomm practitioners and the social science community

The explores the rapidly changing relations between science and the wider society, while the BA seeks to help develop a national strategy for science communication.  The two organisations have joined together to develop a seminar series that brings together practitioners and academics committed to improving public engagement, in order to disseminate social science research and build relationships between science communicators and social scientists.

The series is aimed at people engaged in science communication, including policy makers, professionals, academics and students from a broad range of organisations including government departments, science centres and museums, research institutions, universities, industry, NGOs, education, funding organisations, learned societies and PR.

The final seminar in the series of six is being held on Tuesday 6 June at in London.  The first three seminars in the series were held in November and the subsequent two seminars occurred in spring, during National Science Week
