In light of the Scottish and UK Governments’ advice around COVID-19, we have taken the decision to cancel or postpone all the events we had planned up to the end of June. Some events will be rescheduled for later this year and we are also contacting our speakers to explore ways of potentially running some events online.

If you have already registered for an event, we will be in touch to advise on future plans. If you had bought a ticket for our Edinburgh Science Festival After Hours event, then you will automatically receive a refund.

We will update this page as and when we have more information. If you have any queries, please do not hesitate to get in touch with us.

In the meantime, please visit our YouTube channel for all recordings of our previous events and lectures.

 


 

RSE events include public lectures, conferences and discussion forums that are aimed both at the general public and the specialist.

The RSE’s independence and the breadth of its Fellowship combine to enable leading specialists, researchers and the general public to engage in well-informed debates on topical issues concerning the well-being of Scotland.
