Joseph Priestley Society

Connect with leaders in science, technology, and industry at our monthly JPS speaker series.

Named for the 18th-century scientist who discovered oxygen, the Joseph Priestley Society (JPS) promotes a deeper understanding of science, technology, and industry, with an emphasis on innovation and entrepreneurship. Speakers are leaders from a wide variety of chemical and life science companies and the financial, consulting, and academic communities.

Events are held each month from September to April, with a hiatus in December.
