From the success of the British Ecological Society and Biochemical Society-run Policy Lunchbox network comes ‘Education Policy Lunchbox’, a new initiative for 2010 run jointly by the BES, Biochemical Society and Society for Experimental Biology. As with Policy Lunchbox, there will be a series of lunchtime events through the course of next year, bringing together speakers and those with an interest in education policy to discuss issues of common interest and concern. The events are free, with lunch provided, but registration is necessary as places are limited.
The first speaker of 2010 will be Ros Mist, Manager of SCORE (Science Community Representing Education), on 16 February, discussing the role of SCORE and how people can get involved. For more information see the Policy Lunchbox page on the BES website.
