The British Science Association (BSA) is a charity, founded in 1831. Their vision is of a world where science is at the heart of society and culture. Their mission is to support, grow and diversify the community of people interested and involved in science; and to strengthen their influence over science's direction and place in society.
They organise major initiatives across the UK, including British Science Week; the annual British Science Festival; regional and local events through our network of Branches; the CREST Awards, and other programmes for young people in schools and colleges. They also run specific activities and training for professional science communicators, including the Science Communication Conference.
