MMU hosts the British Science Association Science Communication Conference on June 18-19. The programme is very exciting, and several of our staff are involved in delivering sessions.

The Science Communication Conference is a rare oppurtunity to meet with the different communities within science communication! This year the focus will be on collaborating to come up with solutions and actions to address the big challenges facing the sector.

There are many different events, including a keynote from Jess Thom and a panel debate on whether scientists should be opinion-formers.

There will also be their new challenge sessions – investigate five common problems in the world of science communication and generate strategies to overcome these key issues.
