U3A Science Network

Please use the buttons or tabs above to explore our site


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 2018 event was held at Nottingham University from 6-9 August 2018 - 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 2019 will be held at Aston University, Birmingham. Go to the 2019 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.
