The final of the 2017 STEM for BRITAIN event took place on Monday, 13th March 2017, sponsored by Stephen Metcalfe MP, Chairman the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee and Science & Technology Committee (Commons).

STEM 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.

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.
