About the British Science Association: The British Science Association (BSA) is a charity, founded in 1831. Our vision is of a world where science is at the heart of society and culture. Our mission is to support, grow and diversify the community of people interested and involved in science; and to strengthen their influence over science’s direction and place in society.
We organise major initiatives across the UK, including British Science Week; the annual 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.
