The British Science Association has been rewarding promising young scientists for over 20 years, many of whom are now successful science communicators. Previous Award Lecturers include Brian Cox, Richard Wiseman and Maggie Aderin-Pocock.
The Award Lectures aim to promote open and informed discussion on issues involving science and actively encourage young and early career scientists to explore the social aspects of their research. The nominees should be active, early career researchers who are skilled in communicating their research and who are able to present their Award Lecture during the British Science Festival, 6 - 11 September 2014 in Birmingham.
You can now nominate someone you know for the Award Lectures 2014.
Awards are available in 5 different areas:
Lord Kelvin - physical sciences and mathematics
Isambard Kingdom Brunel - engineering, technology and industry
Charles Lyell - environmental sciences
Charles Darwin - agricultural, biological and medical sciences
Joseph Lister - social sciences
The selected lecturers will receive an all expenses paid trip to the British Science Festival, a £250.00 honorarium and an invitation to the Festival Dinner. There may also be other opportunities to present the Award Lecture at other science festivals in the UK.
