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.

IRIS 2023  conference dates announced:

 

20 June 2023 – University of Exeter

22 June 2023 – Friends’ Meeting House, Manchester

27 June 2023 – Friends’ Meeting House, London

 

 

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, we would love to hear about it.

IRIS Student Conferences 2022

 

Over 400 students travelled to venues in Bradford, Edinburgh and London to share their research with peers and academics. They stunned us with their ability communicate at a high-level, across a wide range of subjects. They proved, once again, the capability and promise of young people when given the chance to discover science through authentic research.
