Competition and exhibition of posters by early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians.


The aim of STEM for BRITAIN is to encourage, support and promote these early-stage professionals who are an essential part of continuing progress in and development of UK research. The event gives members of both Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research being undertaken in British Universities by early-career researchers. 

STEM for BRITAIN is sponsored by Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chair of the STEM for BRITAIN organising group of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee.

Poster exhibition

In order to encourage maximum participation by early-career researchers, the competition is divided into five subject areas:
  • Biological and biomedical science
  • Chemistry
  • Engineering
  • Mathematiccal sciences
  • Physics
Prizes will be awarded for the posters presented in each discipline which best communicate high level science, engineering or mathematics to a lay audience. This year all applicants will also have the opportunity to enter for ‘The Dyson Award for outstanding research towards a more sustainable future' for which there will be Gold, Silver and Bronze prizes.

This competition is supported by the Royal Society of Biology. In the biological and biomedical sciences category, applicants are also invited to apply for The Physiological Society Prize and Nutritional Society Prize (£500 each).

Applications

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.

Applications are open and close on Monday 6th December.

The finals of the competition will be held in the Houses of Parliament on Monday 7th March 2022 (subject to COVID-19 restrictions).
