Essex 2020: A Year of Science and Creativity
Chelmsford Science and Engineering Society (CSES) celebrates its 100th anniversary in 2020. To mark the occasion the Society, in partnership with Anglia Ruskin University, bid to host the British Science Festival. We were successful in bringing this international festival to Essex for the first time its 189-year history.
The occasion inspired Essex Partners to launch Essex 2020 – a Year of Science and Creativity to mark this prestigious event.
We are therefore very pleased to announce our programme of special Essex 2020 events. Read on or see our events pages to find out what we've got planned.
