We have an exciting opportunity for you to have your opinion heard at a national level and to gain a unique insight into UK Parliamentary Processes.

The SEB is a UK Parliamentary Steering Group partner. As such we have been allocated 15 places to attend the Parliamentary Links Day 2020 which will take place online on Tuesday 14th July from 10:00 am-12:00 pm (BST).

This in an annual event organised by the Royal Society of Biology to strengthen dialogue between the science and engineering community and UK Parliament. It helps to provide MPs with a more rounded understanding of the scientific issues we face. The theme for this year’s events is Public Trust in Science and will feature contributions from a number of distinguished speakers including:

· Amanda Solloway MP

· Sir Patrick Vallance

· Greg Clark MP

· Stephen Metcalfe MP

· Chi Onwurah MP

· Professor Dame Anne Glover

· Sir Venki Ramakrishnan

· Professor Dame Nancy Rothwell

· Sir David Spiegelhalter.

As an attendee you will have the chance to submit a short question during the event, and can also send any additional longer questions to prior to the session by the 3rd July.
As the SEB is a Parliamentary Steering Group partner, our questions will get priority in the meeting.

We are putting out a call for any SEB members who would be interested in attending the event and adding to the discussion around public trust in science. This is a great opportunity open to any SEB member who would like to come forward, but may be particularly valuable experience and addition to your CV If you are interested in Scientific Policy, Politics, Public Engagement in Science, or Science Communications.
