Scotland annual events
The annual conference for teachers is in its 20th year. Such is the size and popularity of the meeting, it is now organised with the assistance of an independent events company.
Our AGM and symposium in Ocotber includes presentations from Scotland's notable biologists.
The annual Peter Wilson memorial lecture, run in collaboration with the Royal Society of Edinburgh (RSE) and the Edinburgh Consortium for Rural Research, is held at the RSE building in central Edinburgh in February, and, with its environmental remit, honours a former Institute of Biology Vice President.
Other meetings - public fora, members symposia, careers events, and public lectures - are organised from time to time.
Scotland education work
Education in Scotland is a devolved power, and the RSB's education policy team and the RSBS is keen to support and encourage the study of biology at schools, colleges and universities.
Scotland policy work
Find out what policy work we are doing over on the regional policy page.
The Royal Society of Biology Scotland branch is working to create a network of Scottish members with interests, either professional or personal, in Scottish policy and education.
The aim of this network is to support the RSB in providing evidence-led responses to Scottish and UK Government calls for consultations on a wide range of biology-related policies. To join the Scotland policy and education network, please contact Harriet McAra at email@example.com
