Take your research to Parliament!

Set for BritainI’ve been notified that applications are open for the SET for BRITAIN poster competition open to early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians.  Prizes available up to value of £3,00 per subject area.

SET for BRITAIN Awards are made on the basis of the very best research work and results by an early-stage or early-career researcher together with their ability to communicate their work to a lay audience.   The objectives of  SET for BRITAIN include:

  • Presenting and discussing “ground-breaking” and frontier UK research and R&D to Members of both Houses of Parliament at Westminster
  • Fostering greater dialogue and engagement between early-stage researchers and Members both in Westminster and in their Constituencies
  • Many researchers also gain an awareness of the challenges and excitement in other areas of research, possibly resulting in collaborative projects. They receive a brief introduction to Parliament and can discover also how Parliament deals with science, engineering, medicine and technology.

The competition is divided into five subject areas:

  • Biological and Biomedical Science
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
  • Physics

Applications Close: 17:00, 20 December 2013.  You will need to submit (i) the online application, (ii) an abstract of the poster in PDF and (iii) a letter of reference from a senior colleague (e.g. your PhD supervisor) in PDF. (Application is solely by electronic submission.)
