CONFERENCES

Our conferences are an ideal opportunity for IRIS students to share their research with their peers from other schools and the wider academic community.

 

The experience strengthens self-confidence, builds communication skills and fosters collaboration with like-minded individuals.

Research case studies

 

From identifying planetary nebulae to researching an eco-friendly dyes for textiles, UK students have been busy testing interesting hypothesis.

Have you got research to share?

While most students that take part in our conferences have worked on IRIS projects, we extend the opportunity to young researchers outside IRIS who have something impressive to share.  If you are a young researcher aged 14 to 18 and have an outstanding project, please get in touch.
