The British Science Association (BSA) is a charity, founded in 1831 and incorporated by Royal Charter.
Our vision is of a world where science is at the heart of culture and society.
Our mission is to transform the diversity and inclusivity of science; to reach under-served audiences, and increase the number of people who are actively engaged and involved in science.
By unlocking the potential of a more diverse group of people, we increase our ability to tackle some of the world’s biggest challenges and shape our future for the better.
We organise major initiatives across the UK, including British Science Week; the British Science Festival; regional and local events through our network of Branches; the CREST Awards, and other programmes for young people in schools and colleges. We run specific activities and training for professional science communicators; we undertake research and policy work; and we seek to influence and collaborate with stakeholders including policy makers and opinion formers, leaders from across different sectors of business, industry and public life.
The British Science Association is funded by a mix of grants, sponsorship and donations. We would like to thank all of our partners for helping to support our work.
