Science and engineering intersect with Government and Parliamentary business in the day-to-day process of policy making and scrutiny, and in the responsive expert advice to inform action in emergencies. Science and engineering also impact on the work of every government department, from climate change, transport infrastructure and future cities, to education, national security and meeting the challenges of an ageing population.
CaSE wants to see an increasingly evidence-informed approach to policy making in the UK so that expertise, evidence and knowledge can be used towards making policies smarter and, ultimately, lives better.
