University of Exeter

The University of Exeter combines world-class research with excellent student satisfaction, from their campuses in the South West of England, in Exeter and Cornwall.

The University has over 25,000 students from 130 countries and over 125,000 alumni in 183 countries providing our academic community of staff, students and visiting researchers with a truly global experience and a diverse, inclusive environment. Their strategic partnerships across the world bring together leading academics and the resources of outstanding universities to deliver transformative impact in key global challenges such as global sustainability and wellbeing.

Recent breakthroughs to come out of the University of Exeter’s research include using drone surveys and computer modelling to plot extreme arctic erosion, improving diagnosis and treatment for cancer and diabetes (for which we were awarded a prestigious Queen’s Anniversary Prize) and developing a 7-point plan to battle the climate emergency via economic reform. Scientists and clinicians of Exeter are also part of a £20 million investment to battle the spread of coronavirus utilising the University’s state-of-the-art equipment to sequence the virus from Devon patients to help combat the disease.

Royal Microscopical Society

The Royal Microscopical Society (RMS) is a learned society for the promotion of microscopy. It was founded in 1839 as the Microscopical Society of London making it the oldest organisation of its kind in the world. In 1866, the society gained its royal charter and took its current name. Founded as a society of amateurs, its membership consists of individuals of all skill levels in numerous related fields from throughout the world.[6] Every year since 1852, the society has published its own scientific journal, the Journal of Microscopy, which contains peer-reviewed papers and book reviews. The society is a registered charity that is dedicated to advancing science, developing careers and supporting wider understanding of science and microscopy through its Outreach activities.

Probably the society's greatest contribution is its standardised 3x1 inches microscope glass slides in 1840, which are still the most widely used size today and known as the "RMS standard".[7]

The Royal Microscopical Society is a member of the Foundation for Science and Technology, the Biosciences Federation, the European Microscopy Society and the International Federation of Societies for Microscopy.

NT-MDT

For many years, NT-MDT has been involved in the development, production and support of research instrumentation, primarily, atomic force microscopes (AFM) and its combinations with ultrahigh resolution spectroscopy for nanotechnology and its applications. Our pathway has been marked by the creation of a large number of devices, whose functions and capabilities cover the broad range of customer needs in different areas: university education, academic and industrial research. NT-MDT pioneering efforts led to the impressive combination of scanning probe microscopy with Raman spectroscopy.

The PhD Place

The PhD Place is an online PGR community focussed on friendship and sharing ideas. We believe that sharing and understanding our experiences has the potential to combat feelings of isolation, create life-long connections, and provide researchers with the resources to succeed. The PhD Place is an exciting space to cultivate community and connection with other researchers, and we are only just beginning. Through PhD Spotlight, PGRs have the opportunity to explore a range of experiences from academics all over the world, share advice with other researchers, and make new, likeminded friends. There are no limits on who can take part, and it doesn't matter whether you're pre-PhD, a PhD student, or a post-PhD researcher. Any topic. Any year. Any uni. Get involved via our website (ThePhDPlace.com) or follow us on Twitter (@ThePhDPlace).

The Oxford University Physics Society

The Oxford University Physics Society exists to promote and encourage an interest in Physics throughout the University and to provide opportunities for physicists and people with an interest in Physics to get to know each other. We host weekly talks and extracurricular classes from leading researchers and academics, as well as social events for our members from formal dinners to pub quizzes! Other member benefits include a discord server for meeting new people and exclusive stash.

PRISM Exeter

PRISM (Pride and Representation in STEMM Matters) Exeter was established in July 2018 to provide a network for professionals and students working and studying within the local STEMM sector.

The foundation followed conversations between Exeter-based STEMM professionals who volunteered at (or visited) the Institute of Physics South West branch's stall at Exeter Pride in May 2018.

Together, they found that:
- many local STEMM sector businesses did not have LGBTQ+ networks or provide support/contact networks for other under-represented or minority groups;
- where larger STEMM sector businesses did have LGBTQ+ networks, they held events only as far south west as Bristol;
- there are very few role models to inspire local LGBTQ+ youth into STEMM fields and break the cis-normative and hetero-normative view of STEMM in the media and in society;
- being openly LGBTQ+ at work was perceived by some to be unprofessional.
- most importantly and shockingly, it was clear from conversations that both indirect and direct discrimination and harassment related to sexuality, gender identity, and gender expression takes place within the sector.
