Science Week

Birkbeck Science Week shares our world leading research with a wider audience

Science Week

Each year Birkbeck organises a week of free public lectures and related events to share internationally recognised research in the areas of science.

These events are for anyone interested in science and those who are considering studying science at university. The free science talks can be attended in-person at Birkbeck or attendees can join our global online audience. The Faculty of Science encompasses three schools: Psychological Sciences, Natural Sciences and Computing and Mathematical Sciences.

In our most recent programme for Science Week 2024, the lectures covered subjects such as exploring the Moon, creating an effective data culture within an organisation and how neuroscience, psychology and philosophy can shed light on people's experiences of unseen presences. The programme also included the annual Rosalind Franklin Lecture and the Andrew and Kathleen Booth Memorial Lecture.
