How to get involved

Humber Science Festival 2023

After a successful event in 2022, Humber Science Festival is back for 2023 and we are now accepting proposals for events and activities for the festival.

This year Humber Science Festival will be held Thursday 7- Sunday 10 September 2023 at the University of Hull, and across the City. 

The Festival celebrates science in its broadest sense, including Maths, medicine, engineering, technology, innovation and history of science.  And anyone can propose an event.

We are looking for submissions from a variety of sources, including individuals, researchers, industry professionals, artists, writers, organisations, non-profits, and academic institutions.

Thursday and Friday, Science after hours,  target audience for submissions should be non-specialist adults (16+) with a broad interest in science.

Saturday and Sunday will be aimed at family audiences 8+, as in previous years and will be on campus and in venues around the city. 

We are searching for events that highlight cutting-edge research, celebrate the most recent advances in science and technology, provide audience with the opportunity to participate in activities and/or involve their audience in debating important topics that have an impact on culture and society. In order to challenge preconceived notions about what science is and may be, we plan to offer a variety of forms, including seminars, drop-in activities, and creative content.
