Science Zone


Do you enjoy explaining your research to a wide audience? Would you like to create an activity and develop your idea in an open and friendly environment for all the family? Then, Science Zone is a great opportunity to put your ideas in practise and showcase your science communication skills!

After last year’s successful edition, the Science Zone is back as part of the VII International Symposium SRUK/CERU. It will be held during the early afternoon of the 30th of June 2019 at the Central Teaching Hub at the University of Liverpool, Liverpool. All SRUK/CERU members and non-members are welcome to send their proposals using this online form, which is short and self-explanatory, individually or as a group (max. 3 participants). The instructions to submit it can be found at the abstract submission section. We strongly encourage the submissions from participants with early-stage ideas as our team will also be able to help you develop them!

This Call for ideas will be open until the 14th of May 2019 (final deadline extension), when our team will select the most original applications to be part of our festival. If your proposal is accepted, we will contact you with information about the small grants available and a timeline of what to expect. Selected proposals will be prioritised to receive a microgrant (subjected to funding, members only) and will receive support to apply for external outreach funding.

During the festival, activities will be scored by the attendees and by a SRUK/CERU committee. The best activity will be awarded at the Symposium Closing Ceremony.

If you have any problems entering the information, or any further queries about the Call for Ideas and your proposal, please contact us at

Looking forward to receiving your ideas!!
