Report October 2021

Princess Anne at LIYSF 2021
Princess Anne at LIYSF 2021

By Clare Elwell – Co-Founder and Trustee

After a challenging year we are pleased to report that the 62nd London International Youth Science Forum (LIYSF) took place in July and was a great success. The Forum was run as a hybrid event with 60 students attending in person and over 400 students joining online from across the globe. The event was attended by Her Royal Highness, The Princess Royal in her new role as Patron. Students engaged with world class scientists from a number of disciplines including Professor Sarah Gilbert who led the Oxford University vaccine development team, former President of the Royal Society Professor Lord Martin Rees and celebrated space scientist Dr Maggie Aderin-Pocock MBE.

The pandemic prevented students from the Sub-Saharan region travelling to London to attend the Forum this year but we were pleased to support the online attendance of scholarship awardee Marina from Kenya. As well as engaging with the lectures and online visits, Marina had the opportunity to interact with students from all over the world. We look forward to continuing to support Marina, along with our other alumni students, as they pursue their careers in science enhanced by their experiences and connections from LIYSF.
