CaSE's Lecture will be given by the Government Chief Scientific Adviser, Sir Patrick Vallance, on 23rd January 2020.

With the Government setting an ambitious target to increase research intensity, the CaSE Annual Lecture will offer the Government Chief Scientific Adviser a platform to expand on the opportunities and challenges facing policy-makers in ensuring that evidence underpins this aspiration. We look forward to welcoming Sir Patrick’s insight into how the science and engineering community can best inform government policymaking to meet the economic, health, security and environmental challenges of the future.

The event is kindly hosted by the The Francis Crick Institute.
