Welcome to our Public Science Lectures series!

This series of talks is open to all and free to attend. Lectures are 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 a decade.

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

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.
