Royal Astronomical Society 200 'Sky and Earth' Meeting
|Dates:||23 November 2014|
|Times:||13:30 - 16:00|
|What is it:||Welcome events|
A meeting regarding the Royal Astronomical Society’s RAS200 Sky and Earth outreach and engagement society; an opportunity to meet potential partners and develop proposals.
Sunday 23 November, 1.30 p.m. to 4.15 p.m, at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre
To celebrate its bicentenary the Royal Astronomical Society is establishing an Outreach and Engagement Fund to support astronomy and geophysics projects that create a real buzz about science – understanding, discussion and dialogue – in diverse sections of the community. Further details can be found at www.ras.org.uk/200.
The Society's aim is to fund a number of projects to engage the wider public with the sciences they support, with a key goal being to work with groups that are ‘hard to reach’.
If you're involved with a local or national organisation that might be able to help, the RAS would like to invite you to a meeting at the Jodrell Bank Discovery Centre on Sunday 23 November.
The meeting programme will include a short overview of RAS 200, followed by initial pitches for ideas and a ‘speed networking’ session to allow partners to develop combined plans and more detail on the funding application process.
Please note, this will be a ticketed event. If you would like to attend please RSVP via email to firstname.lastname@example.org by Thursday 13 November.
