British Science Association

The British Science Association exists to make science and engineering more accessible – and more accountable.

It runs the annual British Science Week, which it established as a means of opening the way for people and organisations across the whole UK to create lively and interesting events. Next year's dates are 8 - 17 March 2019.

From town to town

Following the success of the world's first science festival in Edinburgh in 1989, the British Science Association modified the format of its annual meeting of members and rebranded it as the British Science Festival, which it takes to a a different town or city each year. Next year the venue will be Coventry, 10 - 13 September, hosted by the University of Warwick.

It was originally formed in 1831 as the British Association for the Advancement of Science, known for short as 'the BA'. It has now been rebranded, and it uses the full version of its new name, without any abbreviations.

You can join the British Science Association and support its work, or you can simply go along and enjoy some of the events organised by its branches.

The Moray & Highland Branch organises events across the north at various venues.
