I have previously blogged about taking part in SET for Britain, where I presented my work to MPs and other interested parties at the Houses of Parliament.
The 2012 competition is about to come round again (on Monday 12th March 2012), with the deadline for abstract submission on 24th December 2011. I would heartily recommend to any of you interested in describing your research to a slightly unusual audience to go for it and take part! The event is for early-career researchers, but the defintion seems to be quite wide in that it covers, according to the FAQs on the website,
"university research students/postgraduates, appropriate MSc students, research assistants, postdocs, research fellows, newly-appointed lecturers, part-time and "mature" students, and those who are embarking on a second career, etc. and their equivalents in national, public sector and industrial laboratories, or companies, all of whom are engaged in scientific, engineering, technological or medical research"
which should encompass many of the contributors to this blog.
More details are available on the SET for Britain website.
