Is science writing the solution? A panel discussion hosted by Professor Alice Roberts, followed by the announcement of the winner of the 2020 Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize.

At a time when the whole world is looking to science for answers, scientific research is playing a highly visible role in our daily lives. How we find out about science has never been more important. Whether through daily television broadcasts, online news, social media, or reading a popular science book, the way science is communicated influences how we receive, understand, and act on scientific information.

During the pandemic, the celebrations for the annual Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize have taken on an urgent relevance.

The books championed by the Insight Investment Science Book Prize embody compelling science communication and provide an opportunity for readers to engage more deeply with science in an uncertain world.

Join our panel of experts as we announce the 2020 winner of the Royal Society Insight Investment Science Book Prize and explore the importance of, and challenges for, science writing at a time when the spotlight is firmly on science and science communication.
