£2.5 million funding package for Genomics Forum

19.02.2010

Introduction

The Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) has awarded a further £2.58 million to the ESRC Genomics Forum.

Story

Established in August 2004, and part of the ESRC Genomics Network (EGN), the Forum has quickly grown into a UK hub for social science knowledge exchange. As well as innovating new ways for scientists, policy-makers and the public to meet and debate how advances in medical research will affect our lives, the Forum works hard at connecting the EGN’s world leading social science research to the UK’s principal decision-makers.

Over the next 3 years, the Genomics Forum will run a programme of national and international activities including a joint conference with the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) in Paris later this year, specialist short courses, workshops, seminars, public lectures and artist and writer in residence programmes. The Forum will continue to take an active role in relevant science, book and film festivals around the UK – including the Edinburgh International Book Festival - and other public engagement activities, and it has just launched its Bright Ideas programme providing an exciting opportunity for individuals to spend a period of time - anything between a few days and two months – working in residence with us.
