CSaP's next Distinguished Lecturer will be Dominique Ristori, DG of the EC's Joint Research Centre, on 18 October 2012
The next lecture in the CSaP Distinguished Lecture Series will be delivered by Mark Henderson, Head of Communications at The Wellcome Trust and former science editor of The Times.
This lecture will be delivered by Lord Rees of Ludlow. Martin Rees, the Astronomer Royal and Master of Trinity College, Cambridge, was appointed President of the Royal Society in 2005 and completed his tenure a year ago. During his time at the helm, he oversaw a number of changes at the Royal Society that saw expansion in its public engagement and its policy role.
The first Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs was appointed in 1782. It took another 227 years for the Foreign Office to appoint its first Chief Scientific Adviser. We are delighted that CSaP's sixth Distinguished Lecture will be given by the first holder of this historic post, Professor David Clary FRS.
Our fourth Distinguished Lecture will explore the future of science in Parliament through the first-hand accounts of two of the strongest advocates of science in Parliament over the past decade Dr Evan Harris former MP for Oxford West and Abingdon and Dr Julian Huppert MP for Cambridge.
