Glasgow Science Festival (GSF) will return from the 6th – 16th June 2013. The theme is ‘Glasgow, Naturally’, tying in with Scottish Government’s ‘Year of Natural Scotland’. So expect lots of events exploring the environment, sustainability, ecology and conservation. And lots more. With our rich history with greats such as Lord Kelvin and celebrating current innovators, Glasgow is ‘naturally’ the home for Engineering. The ‘Glasgow Miracle’ describes the phenomenon of incredibly successful contemporary artists coming out of the City.
The ESRC Festival of Social Science is a week-long nationwide festival which celebrates the social sciences. Taking place each autumn, the Festival offers a fascinating insight into some of the country's leading social science research and how it influences our social, economic and political lives - both now and in the future. You may be surprised at just how relevant the Festival's events are to society today. Social science research makes a difference.
