Members of the British Science Association are invited to nominate special individuals to be considered as Honorary Fellows once a year.
The nominations are now closed for 2014.
Honorary Fellows are people who have made an outstanding contribution to the aims and purposes of the British Science Association by:
- promoting openness about science in society: between the public, policy makers and other decision-makers, and the scientific and business community
- engaging and inspiring adults and young people directly with science and technology, and their implications.
They include ex-members of the British Science Association Council, as well as people nominated by other British Science Association members. Nominations take place once a year and after consideration by the Honorary Membership Committee and approval by the British Science Association Council, the Honorary Fellows for that year are announced in September at the British Science Festival.
The Committee will consider, in particular, individuals who have demonstrated major contributions to:
- the Association directly, through Branch, Section or other activity
- the aims and purposes of the Association through public life.
