Voice of the Future 2013 – your chance to question MPs

If you are one of our members and aged 16-35, the Society is offering you the chance to question MPs in Parliament at Voice of the Future 2013 (VOF2013).

The event was held for the very first time last year and was such a success that we’re doing it all again! VOF2013 will be held on Wednesday 20 March and is being organised by the Society of Biology and hosted by the House of Commons Select Committee on Science & Technology. The event presents young and early career representatives of a number of learned and professional societies the chance to sit in the seats usually reserved for members of the Select Committee and question the MPs as in a real evidence session.

So if you’re concerned about scientific careers, muddled about the misuse of science in and for policy, fearful about funding or stressed about short-termism, why not take your question to the top?

For your chance to attend, you just need to send us a question for the MPs by 12:00 on Monday, 25 February. Full details and instructions are available here.

  1. More MPs have been confimed since this massage was first posted – the Shadow Minister for Higher Education and Science, Shabana Mahmood MP will be taking questions, and the event will be introduced by the Speaker of the House of Commons, John Bercow MP.
