We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

Key facts

We request that each school only bring a maximum of 15 students.

Places are allocated on a first come first served basis, and we require the names of those attending upfront. Once we have reached our capacity schools will be placed on the waiting list.

The day is completely free but schools must book in advance.
