The Parliamentary & Scientific Committee’s STEM for BRITAIN 2022 will take place in the Houses of Parliament on Monday 7th March, during British Science Week

Applications are invited from early-career research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians for the opportunity to exhibit in one of the five areas:

  • Biological and Biomedical Sciences

  • Chemistry

  • Engineering

  • Mathematical Sciences

  • Physics

STEM for BRITAIN is a major scientific poster competition and exhibition which has been held in Parliament since 1997, and is organised by the Parliamentary & Scientific Committee. Chaired by Stephen Metcalfe MP, its aim is to give members of both Houses of Parliament an insight into the outstanding research work being undertaken in UK universities by early-career researchers.

A wide range of important scientific, engineering and mathematics institutions and organisations lend their support to this event, including:

The Royal Society of Biology, the Institute of Physics, The Physiological Society, the Royal Society of Chemistry, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Council for the Mathematical Sciences, Dyson Ltd, the Institute of Biomedical Science, the Clay Mathematics Institute, the Nutrition Society, the Heilbronn Institute, United Kingdom Research and Innovation,  the Biochemical Society, and the Society of Chemical Industry.

This reflects the importance we all attach to the encouragement of researchers at this stage in their careers.

Prizes are awarded for the posters presented in each discipline which best communicated high level science, engineering or mathematics to a lay audience.
The Westminster Medal for the overall winner is awarded 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.
