Science is Vital
26 October, 2015 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm£5
Over the last five years, real-terms funding of science in the UK has declined by 5%. Britain now spends only 0.44% of GDP on publicly funded research and development, the lowest level of investment of any of the G8 countries. And there’s worse to come: the government is threatening cuts of 25%–40%.
If we don’t act now, there’s a serious risk that the UK will lose its leading international position in science. More worryingly, our economy won’t be equipped to face the challenges of the future. We need your help.
