Voice of Young Science Workshops

Voice of Young Science workshops encourage early career researchers to make their voices heard in public debates about science. During these full-day events, participants meet scientists who have engaged with the media, learn from respected science journalists about how best to promote their work, hear from policymakers on how to inform policy and talk about involving the public in communicating research with public engagement experts. These events are free for STEM and social science early career researchers (PhDs, postdocs or equivalent), trainees and medical professionals.

The following three dates and venues have been confirmed with more to be added later in the year:

  • University of Manchester, 29 March 2019
  • John Innes Centre (Norwich), 13 May 2019
  • University of Warwick, 14 June 2019

As a partner organisation for Voice of Young Science, The Physiological Society has five priority places available to Members, so if you are interested in attending please contact The Society’s Policy Manager, Tom Addison on taddison@physoc.or, or fill out the form on the Sense about Science website. Deadline for applications is 28 February 2019
