Science and the Parliament 2018

14 November 2018, Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Designed to foster close relations with policymakers and key stakeholders, Science and the Parliament is organised by the Royal Society of Chemistry, on behalf of, and in cooperation with, the Scottish science and engineering community.

This 18th annual event, a firm fixture in the Scottish parliamentary calendar, will be held once again at Dynamic Earth, Holyrood.

Science and the Parliament will comprise an exhibition - an excellent opportunity for our leading scientific societies, professional bodies, and universities to demonstrate their work, together with an impressive speaker programme of keynote addresses and panel discussions, including one with MSPs representing the main political parties. The day will end with an early evening reception.

This year’s presentations will be based on the theme of 'Education and Skills’, and will be informed by the Scottish Government’s five year STEM Education and Training Strategy, launched in October 2017, and the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) and the Young Academy of Scotland (YAS) consultation: Tapping All Our Talents: Six Years On, a review into the progress that has been made towards equality in the Scottish STEM workplace over the past six years:

The enquiry, led by Professor Lesley Yellowlees CBE, is due to report this Autumn.
