CaSE Annual Lecture - Public support for R&D and why we need it

Science & Technology

What is public support like for R&D and why do we need it?

2022's deferred lecture will explore the importance of building a stronger identity for research and innovation in public life.

We're excited to welcome Kim Shillinglaw, Chair of CaSE's new Discovery Decade project, who will share reflections on the public's relationship with science in the UK, and the urgency of forging a deeper and broader public connection to put research and innovation at the heart of the UK's future.

Following the lecture, there will be refreshments and an opportunity to continue the discussion with fellow attendees.

There is also the option to watch a livestream of the lecture if you are unable to attend in person.
