Public Engagement at Manchester

Summer Science Exhibition – Call for proposals open now (closes 1 Sept)

The Royal Society is looking for brilliant science and scientists to feature at the Summer Science Exhibition 2018.

The Exhibition features the UK’s most inspiring research and is a chance for scientists to showcase their work to over 14,000 people, including everyone from school children and families to MPs and Fellows of the Royal Society. Exhibitors are supported throughout the process and get dedicated support, advice and guidance from our Exhibition team.

It is a great event to be part of, but as our motto (Nullius in verba) urges, don’t take our word for it. A 2017 exhibitor said:

“The whole week of the exhibition was fabulous. All our team thoroughly enjoyed the event and it has been a memorable experience for us. We have learned a lot from this.”

Our call for proposals closes on 1 September 2017 and the Exhibition will run from 2 – 8 July 2018.

If you are interested in finding out more or applying, please visit our website: https://royalsociety.org/science-events-and-lectures/2017/summer-science exhibition/proposals/

Please direct all enquiries to exhibition@royalsociety.org.
