The Festival celebrates cutting-edge science and innovation, shining a spotlight on the world-leading research taking place at Higher Education Institutions across the UK.

Through its separate press programme, the Festival also generates a huge amount of media interest. With national and international press reporting directly from the event, last year the Festival generated 2,500 pieces of media coverage worth over £5million and hundreds of thousands of social media impressions.

We have a range of Festival sponsorship opportunities available, starting from £3,000; from bespoke sponsorship of high profile events, to support for particular programme strands (such as engineering, sport, digital), to major sponsorship of the Festival as a whole.
