Essex 2020: A Year of Science and Creativity
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.
The British Science Festival has been postponed until next year due to the COVID-19 pandemic, however we are pleased to advise that we will be holding many of our Essex 2020 (and regular) events online. The rest are being rescheduled to our next (2020-21) season.
Read on or see our events pages to find out what we've got planned.

Are you equipped with the digital and soft skills necessary to thrive in the new economy?
Whether you are a start-up founder, executive, manager, employee or student who is about to begin your journey into the world of work, the skills you need to prosper and thrive in today’s digital world have changed.
New technology is being developed at lightning speeds and yet the growth of the necessary digital and soft skills has not kept pace with the ever-accelerating digital economy. This digital skills gap could cost the UK economy £141 billion in GDP growth according to Accenture.
Great news! The FREE Digital Skills Workshop by Facebook (in partnership with Buzzstart Academy) is coming to Braintree Campus on Tuesday 19th November to help equip you with some of the fundamental digital skills needed in the new economy and you are invited!
