New body AsSIST-UK set up with the explicit goal of engaging with science and science policy

6 April 2016

A wine reception on the first day of the BSA 2016 Annual Conference on ‘Global Societies: Fragmenting and Connecting’ at Aston University, Birmingham (6-8 April 2016) publicly launched the Association.

With a strongly interdisciplinary membership already approaching 200, which includes a strong contingent of Innogen members from both OU and University of Edinburgh, this session provided an introduction to AsSIST-UK, its aims, intellectual grounding and future plans for public and policy engagement, and news of its first Annual Conference in November 2016.
