CONFERENCES

We encourage all IRIS students to present their research at our conferences. It is an ideal opportunity to strengthen self-confidence, build communication skills and foster collaboration with like-minded individuals.

Regional Conference
2020-2021

 

Held in the spring, our regional conferences are an opportunity for young researchers to exhibit artefacts and present their findings. Select students are invited to share their artefacts with a VIP audience from the UK’s scientific community at our prestigious Summer Showcase.

 

Due to Covid-19, we are planning a virtual conference for 2021. We believe the online format will allow more students to get involved and share their research. We will be working behind the scenes to ensure we deliver an impactful event that encourages collaboration and learning and champions student research.

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.

Latest conference
2019-2020

 

The IRIS conferences  for the 2019-2020 academic year were cancelled in response to Covid-19. To allow student researchers to share the outcomes of their work, we asked participants to present their findings by video. We’ve worked with a few participants to make videos to showcase the top submissions.
