Please support the Science is Vital campaign to raise the science budget from less than 0.5% GDP to 0.8% GDP; the G8 average. Science and engineering form a vital part of our economy and provide huge societal benefits. If we are to remain world leaders in these areas it is vital that we develop a long term and stable policy framework. We need to fund our research institutions to a level that will allow them to remain internationally competitive.
Please write to your local politician and parliamentary candidates asking them to support the Science is Vital campaign.
