The Royal Society is delighted to invite proposals for the summer 2013 Summer Science Exhibition, which will be held at the Royal Society in London from 2-7 July 2013

The 2013 Exhibition offers a unique opportunity to showcase your cutting edge research to the public, secondary school students, policy makers, MPs, captains of industry, representatives from funding bodies and research councils, teafhers and the wider scientific community. The Exhibition attracts a great deal of media interest, providing a chance to put your institution and its research in the scientific spotlight and raise its profile with key influencers. Over 10,000 members of the public and 2000 school students are expected to attend the exhibition next year, with tens of thousands more visiting online via the Exhibition's website.

THe Royal Society's selection committee will select around 25 teams to share the excitement of their research with a wider audience. The exhibition makes a significant contribution to encouraging public engagement with science and promoting science education. The large number of secondary school students attending the Exhibition also gives exhibitors a unique opportunity to influence and enthuse potential university students about careers in science.

The Royal Society provides support at each step of the way for exhibitors, inlcuding an initial planning day and exhibitor's communication skills courses. The Society's Press Office will work alongside your institution to gain maximum exposure for the research on show. 

More information about the Exhibition, including an on-line proposal form, is available on the Exhibition Proposals website. The deadline for proposals is Monday 15th October 2012. Should you or your colleagues have any queries about the exhibition please do not hesitate to contact Rachel Francis on 020 7451 2244 or e-mail exhibition@royalsociety.org.
