London SciComm Symposium 2018

In September 2015 we started the London SciComm Socials as a chance for science communicators* from across London to get together. In April 2016 we held our first Symposium, in May 2017 we built on that with our second event, and in June 2018 we’re doing it again. This time it’s bigger and better than ever!

On 15th June we want to provide another chance for people across the sector to share their work and ideas, to identify themes that link us together, establish projects that combine our expertise and of course to network efficiently.

In contrast to most other science communication and public engagement conferences, tickets to our symposium are free, but to book a place, we ask people to donate at least £10 to charity. All the money we collect will go to Sands: Stillbirth and neonatal death charity.

* We’ve met scientists, teachers, learned society staff, coordinators of public engagement in universities, TV presenters, marketers, writers, performers, comedians, press officers, scicomm students, bloggers, historians of science, museum folk and we want to meet even more people!


Evaluating public engagement and Impact training – Tuesday 12th June 2018

In addition to our London SciComm Symposium, this June we are also hosting training and networking events.

On Tuesday 12th June London SciComm Socials co-creator Kimberley Freeman is hosting an introductory session about evaluating public engagement.

This session will look at some of the commonly used techniques and approaches to evaluating public engagement projects, including planning and embedding evaluation into public engagement activities, capturing feedback in innovative ways, and producing meaningful evaluation reports that can be used as evidence of Impact.

Tickets are free, but to book a place, we ask people donate at least £5 to charity. All the money we collect will go to Sands: Stillbirth and neonatal death charity.
