Early career researchers are invited to apply to present a poster at this high profile event in Parliament, which will take place during British Science Week, March 2023.
STEM for BRITAIN is a major scientific poster competition and exhibition which has been held in Parliament since 1997, and is organised by the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee. Chaired by Stephen Metcalfe MP, its aim is to give members of both Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research work being undertaken in UK universities by early-career researchers.
The Parliamentary & Scientific Committee’s STEM for BRITAIN 2023 will take place in the Houses of Parliament on Monday 6 March, during British Science Week.
Applications are invited from early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians for the opportunity to exhibit a poster at the event in one of the five areas: Biological and Biomedical Sciences; Chemistry; Engineering; Mathematical Sciences; and Physics.
Prizes are awarded for the posters presented in each discipline which best communicate high level science, engineering or mathematics to a lay audience.
The Westminster Medal for the overall winner is awarded in memory of the late Dr Eric Wharton, who did so much to establish SET for Britain as a regular event in the Parliamentary calendar.
Deadline to apply is noon (UTC) 28 November 2022.
