On Tuesday evening we (WIE!) ran the latest online Science on the Hill public event 'New Scientists: New Research' with the SOTH team from WMS, SLS and QBP. Once again we used the Streamyard online studio which produced the livestream on our Warwick Youtube channel. Hosted by our very own Honorary Fellow Professor Kevin Moffat, the speakers included Dr Erin Greaves from Warwick Medical School and Dr Ellie Jameson and Emily Hill from the School of Life Sciences.
We caught up with Professor Michael Scott, Director of the new Warwick Institute of Engagement, to celebrate his recent Classical Association award win and get some inspiration on delivering meaningful public engagement. For Michael, receiving the award has been a privilege and an honour, and also an important sign of how much the Classics community values communication and dialogue with the wider world.
