FORUM events

The Academy's FORUM events are designed to address developments in science and their potential consequences and applications.

They are delivered through a range of format - such as invited lectures and symposia, roundtables and workshops - and offer opportunities for debates and discussions on current policies and practices. They also provide a platform for promoting partnerships and networks, as well as joint actions by key stakeholder from across the life sciences sector.
