Future Debates Grants Open

Following the success of the past BSA’s Future Debate series, we’re excited to announce that we’re working with organisations across the country on an autumn/winter series of the future debates surrounding the question Does it matter who pays for science?

Grants of up to £500 available!

To support these events, event organisers can apply for grants of up to £500 to organise a debate around the topic of genome data privacy. The events must be held between 18th September and 30th November 2017.

More information about the project, including grant guidelines, can be found on our website. The British Science Association is also able to provide support with finding speakers for your event.

Deadline: 30th August 2017

Why are we doing this?

The British Science Association wants to empower many more people – not just scientists – to constructively engage in debates over science’s role in their lives, their local economy, and the UK’s future.

To make sure these conversations are happening at a local level, we’re working with organisations on our Future Debates series to run debates across the country. Each series of Future Debates will focus on a particular issue, and our topic for autumn/winter 2017 is Does it matter who funds science?

Get in touch ( if you have any questions. Please pass on this information to your colleagues, and anyone in your networks who might be interested!
