Southbank will transform into a hub of scientific learning and discussion, as some of London’s leading scientists take to their soapboxes to showcase their science to the general public.
The event’s mission remains the same: to help eliminate gender inequality in science by raising the profile, and challenging the public’s view, of women and non-binary people in science.
Selected from a competitive pool of researchers, our 12 speakers will be sharing their work in technology, science, medicine and engineering. The speakers and their discussion topics are:
Dr Grazia Todeschini (@Grazia_Tod), King’s College London, “Renewable energy sources in everyday life”
