A report commissioned by CaSE examining the contribution of the UK science base to our economy at the level of industry, universities and individual researchers.
This new independent report for CaSE shows that investing public money in science and engineering is good for the economy. The report looks in detail at the relationship between public funding of science and engineering and three levels of economic activity: total factor productivity growth in industries; ability of universities to attract external income; and interaction between individual researchers and the wider economy.
The report was commissioned by CaSE and funded by a consortium of CaSE members: British Pharmacological Society, The Geological Society, The Institution of Engineering and Technology, Institute of Physics, The Royal Society of Chemistry, Society of Biology.
CaSE, in conjunction with the funders of the report, wrote a two page briefing note that accompanies the report.
