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.

Royal Society of Chemistry Symposium at the University of Edinburgh

Thank you to everyone who attended the Royal Society of Chemistry Symposium at the University of Edinburgh on 28th October.

After escaping the storms in the south of England, our team were ‘blown away’ by the warm welcome we received in Edinburgh.

We presented sessions on publishing, careers, education and communication and had some great discussions with students and staff, on topics ranging from open access publishing to working at the Royal Society of Chemistry and joining as a member.

We’d like to say a massive thank you to RSC education coordinator Margaret Ritchie for her enthusiasm and help both on the day and in the run up to the symposium.

Astrochemistry of Dust, Ice and Gas (FD168)

The Universe is littered with the debris of dead and dying stars. This debris includes large quantities of micron and sub-micron size dust grains. For generations, astronomers seeking to unravel the complexity of the Universe have been frustrated by such dust blocking their view of many galaxies and the oldest parts of the Universe.

However, we now recognise that these cold dusty regions are in fact the progenitors of evolution in the modern Universe. Rich in chemical complexity, they are known to be the sites of star and planet formation and even the host for molecules that are necessary for the development of life itself.

Join this Faraday Discussion to address the cyclic role of dust in the chemical evolution of the Universe; from its synthesis in aged and dying stars, to grain-grain collisions and the first steps in the construction of new stars and planetary systems. 

This interdisciplinary event will unite leading experts from a variety of backgrounds, including: computational and experimental scientists working to unlock the secrets of the gas-grain interaction; astronomers engaged in observing and understanding star and planet formation and the role of icy dust grains in these processes; chemists and biologists seeking to understand the first tentative steps toward life on our own planet and others!

Registration will open shortly, so keep an eye on the  event webpage for the opportunity to be a part of this truly interactive event.
