BES and Biochemical Society Launch ‘Policy Lunchbox’

The British Ecological Society and the Biochemical Society are working together to run a series of meetings aimed at bringing together those working in science policy. ‘Policy Lunchbox’ will begin on 27 May with a meeting with Nick Dusic, Director of the Campaign for Science and Engineering, aiming to explore ‘How to work with the opposition and influence manifesto development in the run-up to the 2010 election’. This will be followed, on 8 July, by a meeting with Jack Stilgoe, Senior Policy Advisor at the Royal Society, to answer the question: ‘How can Learned Societies forge greater links with the Royal Society?’

Both events will be held at the Biochemical Society, Holborn, London. The meetings are free to attend but you must register for a place in advance: please contact to do so.
