Cornwall Science Community
Connecting science, culture and society
Cornwall Science Community is a group established in 2019 with the aims of
- promoting science as a part of culture and society to the people of Cornwall
- establishing collaborative relationships with other similar groups and institutions
Our ambition is to help increase the number of people who are actively engaged and involved in science in Cornwall – whether they think of themselves as scientists or not.
We run a series of events, open to all, most regularly the café sci (in-person and virtual) and our article series. You can sign up to our mailing list to be kept informed of all our events!
