STEM for Britain is a poster competition and exhibition which has been held in Parliament since 1997. Its aim is to give members of both Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research work being undertaken in British universities by early-career researchers.
In previous years we have been pleased to welcome more than 80 parliamentarians to the exhibition during the course of the day. Applications are invited from early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians who wish to exhibit posters.
Applicants should prepare material aimed at communicating high level science, engineering or mathematics to a lay audience. Early-career researchers include university research students, postgraduates, research assistants, postdocs, research fellows, newly-appointed lecturers, part-time students and their equivalents in national, public sector and industrial laboratories, etc, and appropriate MSc students, all of whom are engaged in scientific, engineering, technological, mathematical or medical research and are achieving results.
The closing date for entries is Monday 4th December 2017. There will be an initial selection by the judges and you will be informed by the end of January 2018 whether or not your application to take part in the exhibition has been successful.
