2018 Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize

The judging process for this year's Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize is already under way. The shortlist will be announced in August.

Our panel of expert judges bring together a mix of expertise from the worlds of science, tech, journalism and literature.

Led by this year's chair of judges Frances Ashcroft who, as well as being widely published in the field of cell physiology, has also written two popular science books.

It is a great privilege to be chairing the judging panel for the Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize 2018. This prize celebrates two disciplines that are often seen as worlds apart, but science and literature share many common themes. Both set out to explore the world around us, bringing new ideas to life or helping us to better understand what is already known; and both require insight, passion and creativity. We are looking for exciting science and engaging voices: mind-expanding books that will change the way we think about the world around us.
