STEM for BRITAIN (13 March 2017 in London, UK)
STEM for BRITAIN – Exhibition of Posters by early-career research scientists, engineers and mathematicians (formerly 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.
The final of the 2017 STEM for BRITAIN poster competition took place at the Attlee Suite, Portcullis House, Westminster on 13 March 2017. Nicholas Hillier, Research Scientist for the Magnetic Materials and Sensors Group at REProMag partner NPL, National Physical Laboratory (Teddington, UK), was selected from hundreds of applicants to present his work. The competition allowed Nicholas Hillier to engage in dialogue with Members of Parliament and raise the awareness on the REProMag project. Getting through to the presentation day was a fantastic achievement.
