A Newton’s Apple workshop for Physicists
Once again the Newton’s Apple Foundation will be collaborating with the Institute of Physics to bring an “Introduction to Science Policy” workshop to the Physics Community. The workshop will be held at the Institute of Physics, 76 Portland Place, London W1B 1NT at 14.30 – 17.00 on Thursday 15th November 2012
The speakers at the workshop will be Dr Michael Elves, Chairman, Newton’s Apple, Dr Ian Gibson, former MP for Norwich and Chair of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee, Dr Chris McFee, Head of Civil Contingencies in the Government Office for Science, Professor Peter Main, Director, Education and Science, Institute of Physics and Mr Tim Lovett, the British Association of Bee Keepers.
Each of the speakers will provide information from their own unique perspective on ways in which scientists can communicate more effectively with policy makers, and participants will have the opportunity to pose their questions on science policy issues and put their ideas about how the science-into-policy process can be improved to the panelists.
This is a free workshop but the available places are limited to 30 and will be allocated on a strictly first come first served basis
