Everyone is welcome to attend this virtual event to strengthen the dialogue between the scientific community, MPs and Peers


Parliamentary Links Day is the largest science event on the annual Parliamentary events calendar. It is organised by the Royal Society of Biology on behalf of the science and engineering community to strengthen dialogue with Parliament, and to provide MPs with a more rounded understanding of the scientific issues we face. This year's theme is Public Trust in Science.

This event is co-sponsored by Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chi Onwurah MP, Carol Monaghan MP and Layla Moran MP. Links Day will feature contributions from many distinguished speakers from Parliament, Government and the science community.
