Training for scientists

A FREE science communication workshop is offered on the final afternoon of the 2017 Presidential meeting to support scientists thinking of getting involved in public/schools engagement. It will be a generic sci comm workshop with a focus on plant pathology and will be very hands-on. Further details are available here, Reserve your place by email and remember the timing of this when planning your travel schedule (making this years Presidential Meeting even better value for money!)

Outreach support

Offers of short talks about your favourite pathogen, their significance and the techniques you are using to explore them are invited for the 3rd Damaging & Deadly teacher and VIth form mini-conference, that takes place just before the poster session at the Presidential Meeting.

In support of initiatives to encourage women into STEM, we always have at least 1 female scientists among our 3 speakers. Please email BSPP's outreach officer to express your interest in giving one of these talks (phil.smith@nbi.ac.uk).
