Evangelos Zympeloudis was recently invited to exhibit his poster at Westminster as part of 'STEM for Britain'.
STEM for Britain is a poster competition at Westminster for early-career researchers. It's aimed to encourage, support and promote Britain's research scientists, engineers, technologists and mathematicians in the early stages of their careers.
Evangelos Zympeloudis, a PhD student in the ESPRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Advanced Composites for Innovation and Science, competed nationally to take part in the event and was sucessfully chosen to present his poster, 'Enabling nature inspired composite aircraft designs'. He also took the opportunity to discuss his ideas with Bristol Labour Party MP, Thangam Debbonaire.
The competition, which is designed to further the progress of UK research and development, was originally created by Dr Eric Wharton, a former MP for Bolton. It offers the opportunity to present and discuss 'ground-breaking' and frontier research to Members of Parliament and Westminster, fostering dialogue and engagement.
