CaSE has published its Annual Review for 2015-16, gives a summary of its activities and campaign achievements over the last 12 months.

Notable successes include:

  • Protecting the science budget for the next five years
  • Securing PhD-level exemptions from the Immigration Skills Charge
  • Negotiating a reprieve of Government plans for new ‘anti-lobbying’ rules
  • CaSE statistics on science and the EU quoted by the Prime Minister
  • Reducing the scale of funding cuts by the Welsh Government
  • Science Minister giving the 30th CaSE Annual Lecture

Commenting in the Review, CaSE Director Dr Sarah Main said:

CaSE has matured as an organisation. CaSE is held in high regard across Government and the science and engineering communities it serves. It has extended its reach in Parliament, Whitehall and the devolved parliaments, as shown by the frequency with which CaSE is called upon from these quarters to provide input, evidence or advice.
