Celebrate the Biosciences with Biology Week, 7-11 October 2024

Innovation in biology will help us to support all life on Earth now and in the coming decades. Biology Week aims to celebrate and raise the profile of these achievements and the important work that bioscientists are doing, and to highlight this to all public audiences.

Biology is an incredibly wide field - the broad range of disciplines that our member organisations cover demonstrates this. Research in these fields will be instrumental in overcoming some of our most pressing global issues, including climate change, developing sustainable food and fuel, and diagnosing and treating diseases.

We would love to see every biologist celebrating their work with events and activities that appeal to all audiences. Help us to achieve our vision of a world that understands the true value of biology and how it can contribute to improving life for all.

 

Inspiration for Online Events

This year Biology Week will take place from Monday 7th to Friday 11th October. Explore our events calendar to see what's happening online or near you. If you want to plan an event during or around this week, we've provided an event planning ideas guide for inspiration.

We will monitor the hashtag #BiologyWeek for posts to retweet/share, so use this for any posts covering biology related topics or events over the week.
