Upcoming Science Communication Conference

From the BA Website in the UK comes news of their 2007 Science Communication Conference...

The conference seeks to address the key issues facing science communicators in the UK.

In 2007, it will take place over 2 days with the second day focusing on climate change and the first on more generic and varied aspects of public engagement. Each day the conference will run sessions in three strands - engaging to inspire & educate, engaging to involve and engaging through the media & PR.

Date: 14 & 15 May 2007

Venue: The Institution of Engineering & Technology, Savoy Place, London

Specifically, the conference aims to

  • demonstrate and discuss the contribution science communication activities are making to the various broadly-shared strategic aims for public engagement
  • raise awareness of new developments
  • promote greater understanding and cohesion amongst those working in science, technology and engineering communications
  • provide opportunities to network, share ideas and good practice

The conference is aimed at key people engaged in science communication, including policy makers, professionals and academics, in government, research institutions, universities, industry and business, the media, PR, science centres and museums, science education, funding organisations, learned institutions, NGOs and research charities.

The conference is jointly organised by the BA and the Royal Society.
