Biosciences Outreach and Engagement Symposium

For the first time ever, the Royal Society of Biology is running a Biosciences Outreach and Engagement Symposium, and registration is now open!

Details: 09:00 to 17:00, Wednesday 14 November 2018, in the Bramall Music Building, University of Birmingham

This symposium is ideal for anyone and everyone doing outreach, public engagement or science communication, and offers a great chance to develop skills, learn new ways to engage with your audiences and meet others working in the community.

The day includes 12 workshops, panels and discussions covering:

    • Science communication and art
    • Demonstration design
    • Science comedy and storytelling
    • Grant application guidance
    • Engaging with the local community
    • Digital engagement
    • Improving diversity and inclusion
    • Choosing your audience

And many more, all suited for those who are new to outreach and engagement or anyone who wants to pick up some new skills and meet new people.

Attendees can pick which sessions they would like to take part in, so they can tailor the day to their own interests and level of experience

Tickets are £10 for members of the RSB and supporting organisations, and £20 for non-members. Discounts are also available for University of Birmingham students.

The symposium is organised by the Royal Society of Biology, Association for the Study of Animal Behaviour, Biochemical Society, British Pharmacological Society, Microbiology Society, The Physiological Society and the University of Birmingham.

Looking forward to meeting lots of you on the 14th of November! We’re also looking for some suggestions for a drinks spot to go to afterwards in Birmingham, so let us know if you have any recommendations (Snobs afterwards anyone?).
