The nominations for the annual Award Lectures and the call for proposals for the British Science Festival 2015 are now open.

As announced earlier this year, the British Science Festival will be returning to the University of Bradford from 7-10 September 2015 and we are now on the hunt for cutting-edge science!

There are no restrictions on the call for proposals; anyone can suggest content for an event – staff and organisations from the host University and host city, individuals, freelancers, organisations or academic institutions from all over the UK.

The British Science Festival’s aim is to bring cutting-edge British science to the fore and celebrate the importance of science in our culture and society. This year, the programme of events will focus on research presented through a series of lectures, debates and discussions.

In addition, each year, the British Science Association acknowledges the work of a number of early career researchers and scientists, through its Award Lecture series held at the British Science Festival.  Nominations for rising science communication stars, to be honoured in 2015, are now being sought.

The deadline for the call for proposals is 23 March 2015 and the Award Lecture nominations close on 2 March 2015.
