The Science and Society lectures herald the formal collaboration of LSE and Imperial in a number of areas and are designed to get to the heart of issues concerned with the social impact of science and technology, building the bridge between science and society. The two colleges have many complementary strengths that will be greatly enhanced by closer cooperation.
