The Isaac Newton Institute is very proud to be supporting the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee’s STEM for BRITAIN exhibition at the UK Parliament on Monday 7 March.
STEM for BRITAIN, a poster competition in the House of Commons, involves approximately 120 early stage or early career researchers and is judged by professional and academic experts. All presenters are entered into either the engineering, the biological and biomedical sciences, the physical sciences, the physical sciences session, or the mathematics session, depending on the researcher’s specialism.
Each session will result in the award of Bronze, Silver and Gold certificates. Bronze winners will receive a £750 prize; Silver, £1000; and Gold, £1,500 and a medal. There will also be an overall winner from the four sessions who will receive the Westminster Wharton Medal.
As part of our support, the INI communications team are contacting the home institutions, affiliated research bodies, and local media of each of the 20 mathematics finalists, and asking them to help spread the word about this inspiring event. Amongst those we are helping to celebrate are: Amirhossein Sadeghi Manesh (Coventry); Connor Roberts, Francesco Puccioni (Imperial); Teresa Bautista, Luca Gamberi (KCL); Eleanor D’Arcy, Callum Murphy-Bartltrop (Lancaster); Hannah Kreczak (Newcastle); Pradeep Keshavanarayana (Birmingham); Sammy Ragy (Bristol); Emmanuelle Dankwa, Desislava Ivanova (Oxford); Maria Van Rossem (Southampton); Anastasia Borovykh, Ferran Brosa Planella, Alice Corbella (Warwick) – all of whom are pictured below. We wish them all the best of luck with this exciting opportunity, and hope you will join us in spreading the word about this prestigious event.
The competition is open to early stage or early career researchers, which includes university research students, postgraduates, research assistants, postdocs, research fellows, newly-appointed lecturers, part-time and mature students, returners, those people embarking on a second career, and their equivalent in national, public sector and industrial laboratories, and appropriate final year undergraduate and MSc students, all of whom are engaged in scientific, engineering, technological or medical research.
The Parliamentary and Scientific Committee runs the event in collaboration 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 (of which INI is a part), with financial support from Dyson, Clay Mathematics Institute, United Kingdom Research and Innovation, Society of Chemical Industry, the Nutrition Society, Institute of Biomedical Science, the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research, the Biochemical Society and IEEE UK & Ireland Section.
