The new Award Lectures have been launched to mark the BSA's new vision of making science a fundamental part of society and culture, and to further the organisation‟s rich history of championing cross-disciplinary discussion and debate and will be delivered for the first time at the British Science Festival 2015 hosted by the University of Bradford.

The Daphne Oram Award Lecture will focus on digital innovation and will be awarded to an early career researcher for pushing technological boundaries, or for driving forward computer science – such as open data and cyber security.

The Jabob Bronowski Award Lecture, launched in partnership with the Victoria and Albert Museum (V&A), will celebrate cutting-edge work at the interface between the arts and sciences.
