Science Spending in the UK: Why Are we Spending Peanuts on Particles?
Cancer kills a third of us, and yet we spend less than £3 per person per year on public-funded cancer research. We spend less than 0.5% of the amount we spend on energy on research to make energy cheaper and greener. So why do we spend so little on science, and what should we do about it?
Join us on Monday 27th February for a free evening event discussing the latest issues around science funding in the UK.
The panel includes:
- Professor Jonathan Adams – Chief Scientist, Digital Science
- Naomi Weir – Deputy Director of CaSE
- Andrew Steele – Computational Biologist, The Francis Crick Institute
- Jennifer Rohn – University College London / Science is Vital
- Mike Galsworthy – Founder of Scientists for EU
- Susannah Maidment – University Brighton
There will then be a Q&A debate afterwards and a chance for networking with wine, beer and pizza on offer too!
We’ll be using #DSspotlightFunding to share information on the event!
