Advocating for science and engineering in the UK
The Campaign for Science & Engineering is a leading independent advocate for science and engineering in the UK. The strength of their policy advocacy is due to political networks, independent analysis, broad membership, and responsiveness.
Their objective is to communicate to Parliament and the nation as a whole the economic and cultural importance of scientific and technological education and development, and the vital need for the funding of this research by Government and industry.
Achievement of this is generally by meeting directly with ministers, civil servants and advisers in Westminster and Whitehall, as well as in Edinburgh, Cardiff and Belfast; by
CaSE is now an established feature of the science and technology policy scene, supported among universities and the learned societies, and able to attract media attention. They are accepted by Government as an organisation able to speak for a wide section of the science and engineering community in a constructive but also critical and forceful manner.
