We are compiling a list of reasons why Science is Vital. This will be useful for when we meet our MPs at the lobby, and for raising support in protesting the proposed cuts.
We want to demonstrate that without science we would have no way to develop and evaluate new medicines and therapies; we would have no web and the incredible financial potential that this technology has delivered; that we would have no power to keep the lights on, and no hope of developing new sources of clean and renewable energy.
Scientists and engineers working in universities and institutes, for government, in industry and for charities, have and are daily contributing to the UK economy and to our prosperity and wellbeing. Please leave a comment below telling us your story of why Science is Vital – feel free to add links to strengthen your case.
