About this event
The Pride in STEM Research Showcase will present some of the diverse research being carried out by LGBT+ researchers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) fields. During this one-day event, researchers from all over the UK will give an insight into both their research and work as well as their experiences as an LGBT+ person in STEM.
We encourage everyone to come along and hear about the fantastic work of our LGBT+ colleagues. The event will also include a poster session, at which all delegates are greatly encouraged to present some of their own research. Poster prizes will be awarded at the end of the day.
A programme of events can be found below.
