Many of the projects are of a very high standard indeed, with original research and innovation invariably the hallmark of the major prize winners. Previous winners have gone on to win international accolades and in many cases to forge successful careers at the forefront of the sciences.

It’s not all work though, as this image shows, there is a packed programme of entertainment and social events too.

Date and details for 2019 subject to confirmation.
