SpotOn 2018: Open Research

SpotOn London returns on Saturday 3rd November for another one day conference at The Francis Crick Institute, London, UK.

Hosted by BMC the event will once again push the boundaries of science communication and policy with the theme of Open Research – Why do it? How do you do it? And what happens when you share your research with others?

Sessions will be a mix of (no doubt lively) panel discussions and presentations, with speakers including:

Jenny Molloy (University of Cambridge) and Stephen Curry (Imperial College London) discussing how to open up research; 
Louise Bowler (Alan Turing Institute) speaking about practical aspects of open science;
An afternoon session of science and storytelling with Elodie Chabrol (Pint of Science) and broadcaster Alok Jha;
Martin Jones form the Francis Crick Institute speaking about citizen science
Yolanda Ohene from Minorities in STEM and Matthew Young from Pride in STEM discussing diversity;
and Emily Jesper-Mir from Sense About Science speaking about public engagement.

This one-day conference always packs a huge amount of information into its sessions, in a seriously informal manner. Always one of the year’s highlights.

Register for free and reserve yourself a spot at what promises to be a thoroughly thought provoking day!
