Science and technology think forum
The UK is a global leader in science and technology. Maintaining this status and growing the industry is a priority for the Government. Furthermore, research in science and technology can inform policy areas and shape public attitudes towards them. This is a broad forum which tackles a range of issues related to science and technology. These include;
1) The challenges and opportunities of new technology (for example, individualised medicine, robotics, stem-cell therapy)
2) Policy areas to be informed by scientific research (for example, health standards)
3) How the government can support the industry (for example, education, infrastructure international trade)
4) The role of science and technology in reducing inequality – and addressing the inequalities within the industry (for example reducing the gender gap in STEM).
