The Royal Society of Biology Summer Science Exhibition 2016 - Call for proposals

last modified Jul 27, 2015 05:44 PM

The Royal Society has opened applications for its 2016 Summer Science Exhibition.


Each year over 10,000 members of the public and 2,000 school students visit the Summer Science Exhibition. Many more are reached through coverage on TV, in the media and online.


The Exhibition provides a unique opportunity to raise the profile of your research, technology or institution with key influencers, including potential funders, government and the public.


Selection process

The Summer Science Exhibition Committee will invite 22 exhibits, from a broad range of scientific disciplines, to take part in the 2016 Summer Science Exhibition.


Selection will be based on:

  • The quality and cutting-edge nature of the science: The science on show should be ground-breaking and of potential interest to the media.
  • The potential for interactive and hands-on elements: Wherever possible, exhibits should contain elements that visitors can touch and try out to understand the scientific concepts behind the research.
  • Interest of the subject matter to a broad audience: Visitors particularly like exhibits that are relevant to them or their experience.


Deadline for proposals: Monday 21 September 2015
