Science in the UK regions

CaSE uses its limited resources to campaign for science and engineering throughout the UK. You can find out more about CaSE's work in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland below.

Devolved Elections 2011

CaSE is currently finalising its plans for the 2011 devolved elections. Our goals for the elections are as follows:

- To engage with Parliamentary Prospective Candidates (PPCs) and the party hierarchy on science and engineering prior to the election
- To get science and engineering policies mentioned in the party manifestoes
- And ultimately, to make science and engineering election issues

Further details of our plans will be avilable on the website and on our blog
