The 13th annual Science in Public conference will provide an innovative, engaging, and creative interdisciplinary space to explore the intersection of science and publics. Taking place from Wednesday 10 to Friday 12 July 2019, the theme for the conference is ‘the global and the local’; the organisers hope to increase engagement between practitioners and researchers locally, nationally, and globally whilst also thinking through the implications of science communication and practice on the different scales we are often expected to and need to work on. The conference is open to variety of formats and content, which means that the sub-themes of the conference will be driven by the submissions that we receive. We are looking to include the widest possible range of perspectives in the programme content and encourage you to contact us with questions you might have about potential contributions.


Bursaries

SIP 2019 will be offering a bursary scheme to enable diverse audiences to attend the conference and lend their voices to the ongoing debates.

Details will be posted here when they are confirmed.
