2020 Conference & AGM Update: Covid-19

Thursday, May 14, 2020 - 09:00 to Friday, May 15, 2020 - 17:00

NatSCA2020 and Covid-19

Due to the rapidly evolving situation relating to Covid-19, the NatSCA trustees have taken the decision to postpone our annual conference and AGM which was planned for 14th-15th May 2020.

We hope to schedule an alternative date once the situation has become more stable and we will keep speakers and members informed of progress.

This is not a decision that has been taken lightly, and we apologise to all those affected. We hope that our speakers will be available at a later date.

Sunday, June 7, 2020 - 09:00 to Monday, June 15, 2020 - 17:30
Cambridge, London and Edinburgh

The Fitzwilliam Museum invites applications from early- to mid-career curators of botanical works of art on paper to participate in a series of workshops and collections visits in Cambridge, London and Edinburgh.

The workshops will centre on the Fitzwilliam Museum’s outstanding collection of around 2,000 botanical drawings, watercolours and prints, dating from the sixteenth to the twenty-first century. These include superb examples by the most renowned and influential practitioners of the genre, mainly European, as well as artists of the Chinese, Japanese and Indian schools.

An introduction to mobilising your collection’s biodiversity data

Monday, November 11, 2019 -
10:30 to 17:30
M Shed, Bristol
This workshop, organised by NatSCA, Bristol Culture and NHM London, will take you through the steps required to digitise and share specimen occurrence data (‘what, where, when, who’) with the Global Biodiversity Information Facility (GBIF). A mixture of talks and exercises will provide achievable solutions, but also help delegates make the case for future investment.

The workshop is aimed at people working with natural sciences collections who have a background in the subject but no experience of data mobilisation. Its focus is biological collections.
