The Future of Science Symposium

The Future of Science Symposium, hosted by the Dunn School Graduate Student Association, invites you to explore how the scientific world will change over the next ten years. The symposium coincides with the 90th anniversary of the opening of the Sir William Dunn School and will spotlight some of the most interesting ideas about the future of research, publishing, science communication, funding and innovation. Our aim is to understand how the research will evolve to meet the challenges of the future, discuss what will shape the scientific community in the next decade and explore the opportunities that science will create for researchers and the public.
