The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) marked their 20th anniversary in 2014. As part of this celebration, they supported researchers to engage the public with their research throughout the year. This activity culminated in November with the Great British Bioscience Festival, a three-day science exhibition held in Bethnal Green, London.
Graphic Science evaluated the festival using a combination of observation, visitor surveys, visitor self-recording feedback, researcher self-reflection questionnaires and data collected by BBSRC.
