Why should the taxpayer fund science and research?
Sir Ambrose Fleming Lecture Theatre |
Torrington Place | London | WC1E 7JE | United Kingdom
Ticketing: Pre-booking essential
In his inaugural lecture as UCL’s new Chair in Science and Research Policy, Graeme Reid will consider the issue of public funding for research, drawing from his previous role as Head of Research Funding in the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills.
In an age of austerity, with continued pressure on public finances, how should decisions on research funding be made, and how are they influenced by growing expectations of the economic benefits arising from research and intensifying international competition?
The event will be chaired by Dr Sarah Main (Director of CASE), with Dr Malcolm Skingle (Director, Academic Liaison, GSK), Dr Jack Stilgoe (UCL Science and Technology Studies) and Professor Evelyn Welch (Vice-Principal (Arts & Sciences) King's College London) as discussants.
There will also be a drinks reception after the lecture.
