In the recent Cabinet reshuffle, the Minister of State in the Department for Science, Innovation, and Technology, George Freeman MP, stood down and was replaced by Andrew Griffith MP.
George Freeman has been an active and passionate voice for science, championing UK science and engineering in Government and beyond. We have enjoyed working with him over the last several years and wish him the best of luck for his future.
On behalf of CaSE, I would like to congratulate Andrew Griffith on taking up the role of Minister of State for Science Innovation and Technology. His experience of business and innovation, inside and outside of Parliament, will bring a fresh perspective on the UK science economy. We look forward to helping him connect with the full breadth of the research community to help put science and engineering at the heart of the UK’s future.
