CEO January Report
Here is a brief overview of the past month’s activity at ASE Headquarters, including some of the major interactions with other organisations. The major event in ASE’s calendar, the Annual Conference, was the main focus for this period. At the Conference, we started the celebrations of ASE’s fiftieth anniversary with a number of events including the launch of the anniversary book, the cutting of the anniversary cake, and a presentation of fifty years of images at the AGM. At the Conference, our first breakfast meeting for Corporate members was held, resulting in a useful discussion. Overall, the Conference was extremely well received, and is well documented elsewhere on the ASE website.
Immediately prior to the Christmas break, the Chair of the Association, Liz Lawrence, took up an invitation to visit China along with colleagues from the University of Bradford’s robotic telescope project. As a result of this, we hope to maintain a continuing dialogue with the practical science competition which they visited in Guangzhou. Following the conference, the CEO travelled to Delhi to give the keynote address at a British Council Policy Dialogue event.
Back at HQ, preparations are under way for the Scottish Conference and for ASE’s Summer Celebration Conference. The Case Studies for the Triple Science project have been completed, and the applications for CSciTeach, RSci and RSciTech have been arriving steadily.
