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.
A General Election year presents a real opportunity for the R&D sector to make our voices heard.
Executive Director Professor Sarah Main gives her final report on CaSE’s activities and successes this year, as well as her reflections on a decade leading CaSE, at the 2023 AGM on 28th November.
