Advisory Council

The Advisory Council is a group of distinguished scientists, engineers, industrialists and parliamentarians who are concerned about the health of British science. They do not meet on a regular basis, but from time to time the Director draws on their wide experience. The influential positions that they hold mean that they are well-placed to advise on all aspects of CaSE policy.
