Seminar series on offer

The Natural History Museum hosts several series of specialist seminars aimed at collections management and research communities based within the Museum as well as externally. They provide:

  • expert views on current science
  • a forum for discussion 
  • an opportunity to develop scientific networking and collaboration

Collections management seminars

Collections management seminars are organised by the Collections Management Committee. They present up-to-date information relating to the care and conservation of collections across the institution and within museums generally.

Departmental seminars

Departmental seminars are organised by the earth and life sciences departments. 

Invited speakers present their latest research. Speakers include visiting specialists, students, staff and scientific associates. 

Science Forum 'SciFri' Talks

These are cross-departmental monthly talks, usually by external speakers, and replace the previous Research Committee Seminars. They are intended to be informal, contemporary, inter-disciplinary and cover a range of fields including the latest research, science policy, publishing, media, fieldwork and science methods.

Additional regular yearly events:

  • Earth Perspectives Lecture
  • Darwin's Birthday (February)
  • Young Systematists Forum
  • Annual Student Conference & Thackray Lecture
