Do you have an exciting project that you’re working on that you'd like to share with a wide campus audience?


Do you have an exciting project that you’re working on that could be of interest to your peers? Distilling your research into a poster that is engaging and visually appealing can be a challenge but is an excellent way to stretch your creativity and demonstrate the impact of your work so far.

Enter the second of our Connect Harwell Nxt Gen: 'Celebration of Science' poster competitions to share your work, network with your campus colleagues and have the chance to win a prize! Posters will be judged on the communication of the work rather than the scientific content or research results.

You are also welcome to attend the live event on Thursday 18 November even if you are not submitting a poster, further invitations to register to attend this event will follow in due course.
