How to get involved

The call to participate in Southampton Science and Engineering Festival as a 2020 contributor will open at the end of autumn 2019.

Every year we welcome entries for the following categories:

For researchers

If you are a researcher at the University of Southampton looking to showcase your project at SOTSEF 2020, please note that the internal call at the University of Southampton for contributors will open at the end of autumn 2019. 

A 'Registration of interest' call will be posted on SUSSED, on Faculties/Schools e-newsletters and sent to the Public Engagement with Research unit (PERu) mailing list.

Once you have signed up, you will need to make timely submissions for our registration system, including sending a complete Risk Assessment form for your activity (more detail information will follow via e-mail).
