Thank you to our British Science Week 2021 partners

British Science Week is an annual celebration of science, technology, engineering and maths that features a range of fascinating, entertaining and engaging national, regional and local events across the UK.  The campaign provides a platform to stimulate and support teachers, STEM professionals, science communicators and the general public to produce and participate in STEM events and activities across the UK.

Last year, over 500,000 participants took place in events and activities across the UK – from local community events to our national citizen science partnership. We also generate a large volume of media coverage and extensive social media reach.

Thanks to the following partners and supporters, British Science Week 2021 was bigger and better than ever.

Principal Partners

UKRI logoBritish Science Week 2021 was supported by UK Research & Innovation (UKRI), which is the agency that brings together the seven Research Councils, Innovate UK and Research England. Funding from UKRI enables the BSA to deliver the core British Science Week activity; large grassroots campaign that aims to reach a diverse range of audiences, including those from disadvantaged communities and people who would not usually engage in science.


Major Partners

3M logo3M is a long-standing supporting of British Science Week and shares a passion to inspire young people’s interest in science and how it can help shape a better world for the future. Innovation, driven by diverse thinking and collaboration, is at the heart of 3M’s culture, and as a major partner, 3M will be championing this year’s theme – Innovating for the future.


Mewburn Ellis LLP logoWe are delighted that Mewburn Ellis LLP, one of Europe’s leading intellectual property firms, supported British Science Week this year.
