The 2023 Edinburgh Science Delegate programme is back! The Delegates Programme is for anyone interested in improving their public engagement skills, developing industry contacts and getting a behind-the-scenes look at our flagship venues and events.
Over the course of three days (11–13 April 2023) we’ll be running workshops and training sessions on topics such as Developing Hands-On Activities, Communicating with Confidence and Tackling Tricky Topics. Delegates will have the opportunity to meet the Festival Director and to network at our relaxed Science Salon. Not only that, but delegates can enjoy free and discounted entry to a broad range of Festival events – including those outwith the Delegates Programme period itself.
This year we are delighted to be able to offer four Delegate Bursary places, each worth £50, to early career science engagement practitioners. The places will cover the full three days, and access to all events listed as part of the Delegate Programme.
In addition, we have four travel bursaries, each worth up to £200, available for anyone whose travel costs would otherwise prevent them accessing the Science Festival in person. These can be applied for in conjunction with the Delegate Bursary but are open to anyone attending the Festival as a Delegate.
Applications are open until 5pm on Friday 17 February.
