2016 Event: Monday 7th March 2016

SET for BRITAIN Exhibition of Posters by early-career research scientists, engineers and mathematicians.

The final of the 2016 SET for BRITAIN event took place on Monday, 7th March 2016, sponsored by Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chairman of the SET for BRITAIN organising group of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee.

SET for BRITAIN exists to raise the profile of Britain's early-stage researchers at Westminster by engaging Members of both Houses of Parliament with current science, engineering and mathematics research being undertaken in the UK, especially that by their local constituents and in their local University. Few of them have science or technology degrees, but we usually have around 100 Parliamentarians attending during the day.

Poster Presenters are at the early part of their career- MSc/PhD/Post Doc or similar, either in academia or in industry. We welcome returners and those starting a second career- age is unimportant.
