RAS200 Town Hall meetings (second tranche)

RAS200 town hall style meeting at the National Space Centre in 2014

Here you can find all the information you need about the RAS200 town hall meetings taking place all over the UK and internationally within the next few months.

In 2020 the Royal Astronomical Society will be 200 years old.

To celebrate our bicentennial, the Society has established an Outreach and Engagement Fund of £1,000,000 to support astronomy and geophysics projects that create a real buzz about science – understanding, discussion and dialogue – in diverse sections of the community.

If you're involved with a local or national organisation that might be able to help, or if you are considering applying for the grant we strongly recommend you attend this meeting as there will be time to answer any FAQs about the first tranches and there will also be pointers about things to include in the application form.

These will bring together potential national partners and / or their local representatives with more local groups, who are likely to provide the volunteer effort needed to make funded projects a success.

The confirmed Town Hall Meetings so far are shown here.

Further meetings are planned to take place in Cornwall, Galway, and Wales.

Meetings will have a short overview of RAS 200, followed by initial pitches for ideas and a networking session to allow partners to develop combined plans.

If you wish to be notified of a specific meeting, please get in touch by emailing Sheila Kanani (outreach[@]ras.org.uk).
