In the run up to the 2015 General Election, CaSE sought to inform politicians and voters on the key issues relating to science & engineering and to raise the political profile of science as an election issue. Our work included gathering views from the sector in opinion forums, detailed research and analysis resulting in three election briefings, writing to the leaders of political parties and publishing their responses, making recommendations for parties to adopt if elected, hearing from the parties' science spokespeople at our cross-party debate and analysing key commitments from each party from their letters and manifestos. CaSE also invited all prospective parliamentary candidates to write for our blog setting out how they would champion science & engineering if elected.
