Exclusive events

We deliver an exciting and varied programme of events for our members. This includes regular talks, friendly social and networking events and an entertaining annual dinner.

As a member, you can boost your professional development and share a good time with others.


Our most popular events by far are our twice-monthly (or more) lectures, which often fill an entire lecture hall at Anglia Ruskin University. These fascinating talks by experts from around the country not only enlighten and inform, but also provide fantastic networking opportunities; members have the chance to catch up or discuss the subject together over coffee and biscuits, as well as meeting with the speaker. Members are provided in advance with the full programme of talks for the year so that they are sure not to miss any!

All talks contribute to, and can be counted towards, continuing professional development (CPD).

Videos of selected talks and events are available exclusively to members through the website.

Social and networking events

Informal meals and drinks, topical "Café Scientifique" discussion evenings, group visits to museums and other social gatherings are all ways in which members can build up the CSES community and share and develop our common interest in science and engineering.

We typically meet on the first Thursday of the month: see our social events calendar for further details.

Annual dinner

Our annual formal dinner is an event not to miss. CSES members get together for an evening of black-tie, food and drink, good company and celebration as we look back on our achievements throughout the year gone by, and, more importantly, look forwards towards our future in years to come. A guest speaker always provides an extra special touch, bringing everyone together after dinner to learn about their often inspirational life, career or company.
