Science is Vital announces its first AGM, which will be held on 13 September 2012. This is your chance to get more closely involved in what we do. The AGM comes at a crucial time for UK science. We are currently gearing up to lobby the Government to renew its commitment to science in its next Spending Review, currently projected by The Campaign for Science and Engineering to take place early, in 2013. As the economy is still struggling, we are worried that the Government might look to science for making convenient cuts and, working together with other organisations and campaign groups, we want to do everything possible to make sure this doesn’t happen. At the AGM we will collectively decide how to prepare for this extremely important challenge and discuss other issues that our membership feels are important.
