CaSE Skills Policy Workshop 2023

Join CaSE for an exciting CaSE member policy workshop kindly hosted by Diamond Light Source.

The event will be looking at exploring the solutions to the skills needs of a more R&D intensive economy. We are delighted to share CaSE’s latest work exploring the landscape of education and skills for R&D. This will be an opportunity for CaSE members to discuss the emerging findings and the way forward for education and skills policy if the UK is to deliver on its research and innovation ambitions.

We will use some of recently published findings from CaSE’s Discovery Decade project to explore how R&D connects with children and their parents. Our Discovery Decade data suggests that age groups below 44 years-old are more sceptical about public investment into R&D, and are less likely to see it as something that benefits them. With our expert panellists, we’ll explore how those championing R&D can find new ways to communicate R&D’s relevance to younger generations – in particular, to children and their parents.
