Hosted by the British Science Association (BSA) and the University of Exeter the Festival will include events located across the city centre and university campus. A myriad of free events will be on offer for visitors from Exeter and beyond to attend.
Celebrating the 192nd anniversary of the Festival, and working in partnership with the University, the BSA will bring its flagship event to the South West for the first time since 2004, when it was last hosted by the University of Exeter.
The British Science Festival is one of Europe’s longest-established science festivals, which travels to a different part of the UK each year. It brings science to the wider public in the form of installations, exhibitions, talks, panel discussions, performances and more.
The University of Exeter is a hub for transformative research and innovation in the region. The University is also home to the top five most influential climate scientists in the UK, all in the top 21 in the world.
University of Exeter researchers will be on hand to showcase its pioneering work towards a more sustainable, healthy and socially just future. The University also aims to further its support of local communities and organisations through the Festival’s legacy.
