Details

Our world is changing and we are tackling big global issues: climate, plastics, antibiotic resistance, water and food security to name just a few. Scientists and science communicators are essential in helping develop conversations between the science community, the public and policy makers – now more than ever. A university can put science at the heart of its community, providing support for school outreach and public engagement. In this lecture, Prof Yeoman will explore the role of the university as we train the next generation of scientists, making them better and more confident communicators.

Inaugural lectures recognise and celebrate the promotion of UEA academics to the position of professor, whilst giving audiences the chance to hear about their research and its impact on society. These lectures are free and open to all, and there's no need to book; simply turn up on the night, or watch live via YouTube. Each lecture is followed by a free drinks reception, with a chance to meet the speaker and ask them questions about their research.
