Michael Faraday Prize and Lecture
by Professor Brian Cox OBE
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?
