Nominations for rising science communication stars, to be honoured in 2016, are now being sought.

For over 20 years, the British Science Association has acknowledged the work of promising early career researchers and scientists, through its Award Lectures. Previous Award Lecturers include Brian Cox, Richard Wiseman, and Maggie Aderin-Pocock.

The Award Lectures aim to promote open and informed discussion on issues involving science and actively encourage scientists to explore the social aspects of their research. The nominees should be active, early career researchers who are skilled in communicating their research and who are able to present their Award Lecture during the British Science Festival, 6 – 9 September 2016 at Swansea University.

Award Lecture nominations close Friday 4 March 2016.
