Engagement in the age of uncertainty


Keynote Salisbury - level basement 2 'KN'

Universities – and the value they bring to the whole of society – should be better understood now than at any previous point in history. More young people study in them than ever before, and academics are a constant fixture in our public and cultural life. So, what’s gone wrong, and why has the narrative about higher education been so negative in recent years? Opening THE Live with our annual lecture, one of the UK’s best science communicators will ask and answer these challenging questions. Kevin Fong is a lecturer, researcher, emergency doctor and broadcaster, and his keynote will kick off two days of inspiring, challenging and entertaining debate.
