Parliamentary Links Day – 22 June

Next Tuesday sees the Royal Society of Chemistry’s annual ‘Parliamentary Links Day’, an opportunity for scientists to meet parliamentarians in Westminster. The event this year will provide the chance to mix with new MPs, encouraging them to see the value of science to policy-making. Parliamentary Links Day is part of the RSC’s ‘Links Scheme’, which matches RSC chemists with their MP. The MP is encouraged to contact their ‘Link’ scientist for briefings and information on chemical science or other matters related to the work of the RSC. The day is co-sponsored by the Society of Biology.

The BES will attend Parliamentary Links Day, as in previous years, and we’ll be blogging about the event afterwards. On the day itself (22 June) there’s the opportunity to view presentations and discussions live via a web-feed which you can access here.
