Join Lord Drayson (pictured), Adam Afriyie and Evan Harris at this important cross-party debate on Science Policy in the UK, to be chaired by Professor Ian Leslie, Pro-Vice-Chancellor of the University of Cambridge.

Science policy includes not only the funding of the Science and Engineering Base through grants and the stimulation of societal impact through Intellectual Property Rights, but also the purchasing policies of the government and their efforts to influence international standards. Our Open Meeting on the evening of Monday 23 November will give attendees the opportunity to hear the views of the major political parties on this subject, as well as provide a chance to debate the role government should play to ensure that wealth and job creation happen here in the UK by putting specific questions to the panel.

The meeting and discussions will be chaired by Professor Ian Leslie, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Cambridge Computer Laboratory and the University’s Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Research since 2004. Debating the issues will be the Government’s Minister for Science and Innovation, Lord Drayson, and Adam Afriyie MP (Cons) and Dr Evan Harris MP (Lib Dem). Jonathan Grant, President of RAND Europe, will join them on the Q&A panel.
