All the discussion from the Campaign for Science and Engineering’s annual discussion

January 21, 2015

The 2015 general election takes place in May, but what do we know about where the major political parties stand on science and engineering? What might be in store once the votes have been cast?

The Royal Society hosted the Campaign for Science and Engineering’s annual cross-party science ministers’ debate on 14 January.

Taking part are:

  • Greg Clark, minister for universities, science and cities
  • Julian Huppert, research scientist and Liberal Democrat MP
  • Liam Byrne, Labour shadow universities, science and skills minister

The debate was chaired by space scientist Maggie Aderin-Pocock.
