Overview

Michael Faraday Prize and Lecture

by Professor Brian Cox OBE

Event details

This lecture will explore the place of science in society, and discuss how the tremendous discoveries of the last few years, at the Large Hadron Collider and elsewhere, have helped transform the public perception of science. How should the scientific community seize this moment, and work together with government and the public and private sectors to make Britain the best place in the world to do science?

Professor Brian Cox OBE is a British particle physicist, a Royal Society University Research Fellow, PPARC Advanced Fellow and Professor at the University of Manchester.

He has won this award for his outstanding achievements in popularising science via numerous television documentaries, radio shows, live science shows, public lectures, books, newspaper articles and face-to-face interaction with school children and teachers. He demonstrates dedication to influencing politicians and science funders and remains fully committed to his pioneering research in particle physics.
