      British Embassy Annual Science Day

      Welcome to the Annual Science Day at the British Embassy in Oslo! Following last year’s successful launch of the Science and Innovation Network, the British Embassy in Oslo is proud to be hosting its annual Science Day. Together with the Royal Society and the Norwegian Academy of Science and Letters, we look forward to welcoming you to the Embassy for a day of UK-Norway science collaboration, partnership building and networking. This year, we are excited to have the president of the Royal Society, Julie Maxton and University of Oslo Professor Henrik Bjørnebye share their expertise on "Legal and Ethical Aspects of Climate Change". In a panel with Norwegian climate change experts, they will shed light on aspects of growth and development in the age of climate change. We hope that you are able to spend the afternoon together with us and colleagues from the wider science and innovation community and will engage in the discussion. Please note that the keynote address and panel discussion has a limited number 90 places available. If the event is full or you are prevented from attending the whole day, we hope that you will sign up and join us for the reception following the panel discussion, which will give you an opportunity to network with innovators and researchers from the Norwegian science community.
