A vision for science and society
We welcome the opportunity to respond to the Department’s consultation into the strategy and priorities for its Science and Society programme. The vision for the strategy is to achieve a society that is excited by science; values its importance to our social and economic wellbeing; feels confident in its use, and supports a representative well-qualified scientific workforce.
We welcome the focus of the strategy on the role of Government in establishing well informedscience policy, securing public support for science, and in establishing the skilled manpower base to enable the UK to address the crucial issues facing society today.
