12th March 2014 - FINAL PROGRAMME
Deer, Howie and Zussman
50th Anniversary of the death of Sir Arthur Russell commemorated by the publication of an extensive article about his life by Roy Starkey of the Russell Society. Extensive use is made of the Mineralogical Magazine online journal archive.
Member of Mineralogical Society Council, Prof. Jon Lloyd of the University of Manchester, included in Science Council list of '100 leading UK Practising Scientists'
To identify its list of 100 , the Science Council organised a competition around 10 different ‘types’ of scientist roles. The list of 100 has 10 different examples of each of the 10 types and gives a broad picture of the many different ways people work with science, making valuable contributions across UK society and the economy.
After seeing the list David Willetts, British Minister for Universities and Science said: "This list helpfully challenges the perception that there is only one kind of scientist and highlights the different types of skills and challenges a career in science involves. If we want more people to enter a career in science we need to show that the scientific community is not some exclusive club but people with a wide variety of vocations and interests who have rewarding careers and are making a significant contribution to the wealth and well-being of the UK."
