From renewable energy to disease cures and smart materials to space exploration, these nine young women and men are the technical and creative visionaries bringing the future to your doorstep. You might not recognize their names—they’re too busy experimenting to court the limelight—but as university Faculty recipients of the 2019 Blavatnik Awards for Young Scientists in the United Kingdom, they represent the best of what’s next in UK science. They can predict the future because they’re creating it.

Whether you’re a scientist or science enthusiast, this series of short, interactive talks from leading young UK scientists will showcase their cutting-edge research that is shaping the way our world will look over the next century.  A closing panel discussion, featuring thought leaders from the science community, will explore trends and insights influencing the future of UK science.
