The U3A Science Network exists to encourage science activities within the U3A. To that end, since 2003 the Network has held an Annual Meeting in August. The Annual Meeting is organised by a small team of U3A members from around the country who can be contacted via our Contact page.

Our 2017 event was held at Nottingham University from 7-10 August 2017 - see picture below. The meeting consisted of talks given by U3A members on a wide range of scientific and technological topics plus a visit.

Our meeting in 2018 will again be held at Nottingham University. REMINDER The balance should be paid by 2 June. Go to the 2018 Annual Meeting page for more details.

Do look at Jo Livingston's account of the first 10 years of the Meetings on Earlier Meetings.

This website also allows U3A members to identify and contact other U3A Science groups across the country (via the U3A Science and Technology Groups page) and has links to some useful resources.
