We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Talking Science at Daresbury Laboratory

Given the current restrictions surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic we are launching our Talking Science series of public lectures online until further notice. We are closely following government advice to understand when we will be able to safely return to Daresbury Laboratory to deliver our usual face to face engagement.

Until such time, please follow our social media accounts on twitter @DaresburyLaboratory and Facebook to find out more about our upcoming Talking Science events which are being advertised on a monthly basis. Each talk is recorded, so if you miss any please get in touch at dltalkingscience@stfc.ac.uk and we will happily send you a link to the recording.

If you have any questions or wish to be placed on our mailing list please email the Daresbury Public Engagement Team at dltalkingscience@stfc.ac.uk We look forward to you joining us ‘virtually’ soon!

Public Engagement with science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) has always been important to us, and we love to talk about our world leading research, together with the impact science has on the world around us.
In order to do this, we host a monthly programme of fascinating public talks at Daresbury Laboratory called Talking Science. Our aim is to inspire and involve you, the public and schools in STEM, and are proud that we have been running this popular series for nearly 25 years!
So we do hope you can join us in finding out more about some of the amazing science and research that is currently happening in the world around us, from protecting our planet to taking you on a journey outside our solar system, there is something in the series for everyone!
