The Science Communication Conference is the annual event that brings together the most diverse range of science communicators to meet each other, get new skills and discuss the biggest issues in public engagement.

The Conference contains a real mixture of sessions including inspiring plenary sessions and you choose the parallel sessions that you think are most relevant for you.

If you’re a researcher interested in how to communicate your work, you might be interested in:

  • Science busking – What? Why? How? – looking at how you might consider using science busking to talk about your work.
  • Citizen Science – explore how you can enable the public to get involved in real science and the tools to make this happen.
  • The art of popular science writing – how can you engage people through an amazing science article or blog post? Improve your writing skills in this session.

And many more! Take a look at the programme and discover the rest of the sessions that the Conference has to offer you.
