History of the event
Before COVID, Posters in Parliament took place annually to bring together a remarkable collection of the best undergraduate research from across the country. We are delighted that Posters in Parliament is returning in 2023.
Posters in Parliament is a fantastic event that provides an opportunity for over 50 undergraduate students, representing universities from across the UK, to exhibit their research in Westminster. The exhibition is inspired by the US Posters on the Hill event, where students are sent by their universities to present their work to the House of Representatives and the Senate.
The Posters in Parliament event gives the opportunity for legislators and policy makers to see first-hand some of the innovative research taking place around the country.
The event is part of the British Conference of Undergraduate Research (BCUR), an open coalition of universities dedicated to encouraging a national culture of undergraduate research. BCUR grows every year, giving more undergraduate students the opportunity to experience real research at the cutting edge of their field. Many of them go on to publish their work in highly-rated journals and then develop their research even further as postgraduate research students.
The exhibition is a great opportunity for students to share research and ideas with those from other universities across the UK. The modern world faces big challenges in a huge range of areas such as energy, health and sustainability but Posters in Parliament clearly demonstrates that we have a new generation of emerging researchers able to meet those challenges.
