What is the Branches Away Day?
The Branches Away Day is an opportunity for branch volunteers from across the country to come together and...
- Share stories with other branch members
- Exchange new event ideas
- Meet the British Science Association regional team
- Hear from other organisations
- Learn from a bespoke training session
- Celebrate the year's successes.
This year's Away Day will take place on Wednesday 10th September at the University of Birmingham, during the British Science Festival .
Each branch is invited to send two representatives to participate in the Away Day. The British Science Association will be pleased to reimburse the cost of travel and one night's accommodation for up to two people, and lunch will also be provided on the day. For those that would like to stay at the Festival for longer, we are able to offer a discounted rate on accommodation.
