Description

Posters in Parliament 2018

On Tuesday, 20 February the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR) will be exhibiting research projects in the Attlee Suite, Portcullis House, Houses of Parliament. Students from 25 universities will have their research projects displayed in two exhibitions. The students will be representing the full spectrum of UK universities. The first exhibition runs from 1pm to 2pm and the second from 2.30pm to 3.30pm. In most instances each university will have two students presenting their posters - one in each exhibition.

The event is a wonderful opportunity to celebrate British undergraduate research, as well as to showcase the tremendous progress that the UK has made in this area. BCUR has made a significant contribution to this success and continues to work to promote undergraduate research in all disciplines by providing students with an opportunity to share their research through poster presentations, spoken papers, or through creative outputs such as performances and film.

On the day of the exhibitions a high level judging panel, consisting of representatives from Parliament and the Higher Education sector, will choose a winning research project. The prize giving will be in the Attlee Suite from 4pm to 4.30pm.
