SET for Britain 2014 competition

A poster competition with cash prizes for early-stage researchers

If you’re an early-stage researcher undertaking an exciting scientific project, why not enter the 2014 SET for Britain competition for a chance to win up to £3000?

SET for Britain is an annual poster competition supported by the Royal Society of Chemistry along with other learned societies. The event aims to encourage and promote early-career scientists and engineers, as well as raising the profile of science and engineering within the Houses of Parliament.

There are five subject categories – biological and biomedical science, chemistry, engineering, mathematics, physics – and prizes are awarded in each category for the posters that best communicate high level science to a lay audience. The gold prize is £3,000, silver is £2,000 and bronze is £1,000.

Finalists will have the opportunity to present their research at the House of Commons Marquee on 17th March 2014, hosted by Andrew Miller MP, Chair of the Science and Technology Select Committee, where the prizes will be awarded and the overall winner will receive the Westminster medal.

The closing date for entries is Monday 20th December 2013. Find out more on our website.
