The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee will be holding a major scientific competition and exhibition in Parliament and is looking for eligible candidates to take part. SET for BRITAIN will be held in the House of Commons on Monday, 17th March 2014 between 12.15pm and 9.15pm during National Science and Engineering Week 2014.
The day will be divided into four subject categories over three sessions. Applications are invited from early-stage and early-career research scientists, engineers, mathematicians and technologists who wish to exhibit posters in one of the following areas:
• biological and biomedical science
• physical sciences (chemistry and physics)
A wide range of important scientific and engineering institutions are lending their support to this event, including the Society of Biology, the Institute of Physics, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society of Chemistry, The Physiological Society, the Council for Mathematical Sciences and the Clay Mathematics Institute. This reflects the importance we all attach to the encouragement of researchers at this stage in their careers.
Medals and cash prizes will be awarded for the best scientific posters presented in each discipline, and the presenter of the poster judged to be the overall winner will receive the Westminster Medal, 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. Full details of the competition and exhibition including the application form can be found on the SET for BRITAIN website at: www.SETforBRITAIN.org.uk.
