Science Public Lectures

Welcome to the Science Public Lecture Series 

This series of talks is open to all and free to attend with lectures being held once a month (on the third Thursday of each month). We welcome speakers in all areas of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) from across the University of Nottingham, and we hope you can join us to hear about some of the fascinating research that is being undertaken at the University.  

Colleagues from across the University’s Science community have been jointly hosting a series of public science lectures for over 10 years following on from the successful lectures organised for the International Year of Astronomy (2009), Int. Year of Chemistry (2011), and the series organised by the East Midlands British Science Association. 

The series is currently organised by colleagues within the Institute of Policy and Engagement (Charlotte Lee) and Dr. Hilary Collins (School of Pharmacy) content organiser and host. 

If you would like any more information about the series or would like to be added to the mailing list, please don’t hesitate to contact us. 

Due to COVID-19, all lectures will be held virtually for the foreseeable future using Microsoft Teams
