Science Week

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

Science Week

Each year we organise a week of free public lectures and related events to share Birkbeck's internationally recognised science research. The most recent programme took place in spring 2023 and covered talks from Biological Sciences, Earth and Planetary Sciences and Psychological Sciences.

The talks were free and available to attend in person in central London or as part of a global audience for the live-streamed events. The Rosalind Franklin Lecture, which celebrates the work and life of one of Birkbeck's most distinguished scientists, was part of this series of events and was given by Professor Francesca Happé – watch the lecture recording.

You can catch up with events from past years through our collection of blogs, lecture recordings and photos.
