We are no longer accepting proposals from University of Exeter staff for the British Science Festival 2023.

The British Science Festival will take place in Exeter from the 7-10 September 2023, and will be hosted by the University of Exeter.

The programme showcases cutting-edge science, technology and ideas that challenge, inspire and excite audiences. Each year, thousands of people come together to celebrate the latest developments in research and engage in open discussion about issues affecting our culture and society.

Every year, a significant part of the Festival programme features events proposed by researchers from the host university. Proposals should be targeted at an adult audience (age 16+). We anticipate that the vast majority of events in the 2023 programme will use a range of participatory formats, besides talks and lecture-style events, and will take place outside of a traditional lecture-theatre setting.

It is no longer possible to submit a proposal for an event for the 2023 Festival.
