CaSE has published its July e-bulletin, giving a summary of all CaSE’s activities over the last month. These include:
- June saw the seventh Science Question Time event, run by CaSE in collaboration with the Biochemical Society and Alice Bell of Imperial College. With ‘Growth’ as the evening’s theme the panel and audience discussed the concept of economic growth, and how science and innovation can help to deliver it.
- The Government has announced the appointment of Sir Mark Walport as the new Government Chief Scientific Adviser (GCSA). Sir Mark is currently the Director of the Wellcome Trust.
- The hurdles facing women in science were addressed by MPs in the House of Commons last month, as part of an adjournment debate organised by Valerie Vaz MP.
- June saw the launch of two projects aimed at removing barriers for disabled people in science and engineering. The STEM Disability Committee, of which CaSE is a founding member, launched its new website. The site is set to become the sector’s main resource and portal for people studying or working in science and engineering.
