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
  • Physics
  • Engineering
  • Mathematics
There will be two poster exhibitions and judging sessions during the day, each ending with a reception and prize-giving. 


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.

The closing date for poster entries is Monday 3rd December 2018.

Further information

Full details of the competition and how to apply can be found on the STEM for BRITAIN website. Please contact Leigh Jeffes with any further questions.


The event is organised by the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee together with the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Society of Biology, The Physiological Society and the Council for the Mathematical Sciences.
