Wellcome Connecting Science brand refresh
You might have noticed that something about Connecting Science looks a little different… here’s why!
With a long-standing record of delivering excellence in relation to training and learning events, for the past six years the Courses and Conferences team have been part of Wellcome Connecting Science. Connecting Science is a programme focussed on training, learning and engagement for both professional and public audiences. It is part of Genome Research Limited (GRL), the organisational family that also includes the Wellcome Sanger Institute, and the enterprise and innovation activities that take place on the Wellcome Genome Campus.
As part of GRL, Connecting Science plays a key role in delivering one of the elements of the organisation’s mission: fostering knowledge exchange and discussion of the scientific, medical and wider implications of genomes. And, as with the other parts of GRL, Connecting Science is privileged to receive long-term core funding from Wellcome.
Until recently our close relationship with the Sanger Institute and with Wellcome, wasn’t really reflected in the visual elements that we used as part of our ‘branding’ or the look and feel of the materials that we produced. So we decided to improve how we communicate this message, with a refresh of our brand.
We have updated our full name to Wellcome Connecting Science, and adopted a visual style that is part of the family of Wellcome funded organisations. The Courses and Conferences team will continue to deliver an innovative and exciting programme of professional learning and training activities, fully within the Connecting Science brand. You’ll see this manifesting itself in our new logo and other elements across all our digital platforms such as websites and social media.
So whether you have been a conference delegate, a course participant, a committee member, or a trainer, we’d like to thank you for your support over the years, and look forward to continuing to work closely with you all.
