COVID-19 UPDATE: The 2020 Sir Gareth Roberts Lecture and Saturday Morning Science events have now been cancelled

(6 March 2020)

Notice of cancellation - The Sir Gareth Roberts Lecture 2020 and Saturday Morning Science events

Due to the latest developments around the Covid-19 (Corona) virus, the Department has now cancelled both the Gareth Roberts Lecture, which was to be delivered by Dame Sue Ion and titled 'Net Zero Carbon by 2050' and the Saturday Morning Science slots for the academic year 2019/20.
The organisers of Saturday Morning Science wish to convey the following message:
We are very sorry about this and this hasn't been an easy decision, but given the serious health threat, we came to the conclusion that it would not be very responsible to continue with the show. We hope you do understand and we in particular hope that you join us again in the next academic year. Now that we have cancelled this year's talks, we already have started to prepare next year's programme which we will publish at in due course.
