SET for Britain

psc_backgroundThe Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, of which EPC is a member, has launched its call for submissions to “SET for BRITAIN” which will be held in the House of Commons on Monday, 17th March 2014 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: Engineering, Mathematics, Biological and Biomedical Science, Physical Sciences (Chemistry and Physics). The event is sponsored by BP, INEOS, ESSAR, Germains Seed Technology and the Institute of Biomedical Science. 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 ensured that SET for BRITAIN was established 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.

Deadline for applications: 17:00 on 20th December 2013.
