Opportunities for researchers – British Science Festival 2022

We’ve got lots of opportunities for researchers to get involved in the British Science Festival 2022 in Leicester.

We welcome proposals from across the UK, from research that encompasses science in the broadest sense of the word. If you have any questions or would like to discuss anything don’t hesitate to get in touch. Please find more information about opportunities available below.

Open Call for proposals – Do you have an idea to engage public audiences with science and research?

The British Science Festival are now accepting event proposals for the 2022 Festival in Leicester, hosted by De Montfort University.

The Festival celebrates science in its broadest sense. They are looking for proposals from individuals, researchers, industry professionals, artists, writers, organisations, charities, academic institutions, and more. Highlights from the 2021 Festival can be found here: https://www.britishscienceassociation.org/blog/british-science-festival-2021-highlights

Festival proposals should be aimed at non-specialist adults (16+) with a broad interest in science. They are looking for events that showcase cutting-edge science, celebrate the latest developments in science and technology and engage their audience in open discussion about relevant issues that affect culture and society. They aim to programme a range of formats from talks to drop-in activities and creative content that challenges perceptions of what science is and can be.

More information, including how to submit a proposal, can be found here: https://www.britishscienceassociation.org/british-science-festival.

The deadline for proposals is 17.00 on 14 February 2022.
