Aberdeen University is to host one of Europe’s largest science festivals. The British Science Festival is expected to attract at least 40,000 scientists and members of the public. It is designed to engage the latest thinking in science, technology and engineering.
Sir Roland Jackson, the chief executive of the British Science Association, said he had been impressed by the active role the Aberdeen branch of the association had played in public engagement with science over the years.
The university will host the festival from 4 to 9 September, 2012, at King’s College in Old Aberdeen and at the Foresterhill health campus.
This year, The British Science Festival will be held in Birmingham and will attract 350 of the UK’s top scientists, engineers and commentators together to discuss the latest developments in science and technology. Tens of thousands of visitors regularly attend a wide variety of events – from hands-on family days, to debates on current hot topics and unique opportunities to question the UK’s top scientists. This year the British Science Festival will take place on 14-19th September 2010.
