Sci Comm South West Conference 21st June 2019

The conference

The South West is a hub for science communication, with a wide range of organisations contributing to the sector. The first Sci Comm South West conference offers an opportunity to celebrate the diversity of this expertise and reflect on the challenges we face.

Amid a backdrop of unparalleled social, political and environmental change, what can we, as a collective, do to foster a brighter future for the research and practice of science communication… and for society? And how does our regional hub fit within the global picture of science communication, and local, on-the-ground action?

Help shape the discussion by submitting your ideas for an innovative mix of workshops, as well as the chance to hear the perspectives from a range of South West organisations. Whilst we’d like to focus on the South West and Wales in particular, we welcome submissions from delegates based elsewhere.

The event will run from 10am-4.30pm (9am registration) and will include lots of opportunities to network and problem solve, with optional celebratory activities in the evening. Full details of our exciting conference programme will be published here shortly.
