People's Vision for R&D

The Discovery Decade project is seeking to drive a behaviour change in how the sector advocates for R&D. To support this, we are carrying out a public dialogue exercise to strengthen the Discovery Decade programme’s public attitudes research, which will explore society’s stake in UK research.

A public dialogue to explore society’s stake in UK research

CaSE has commissioned the National Centre for Social Research and the National Centre for Coordinating Public Engagement to deliver the public dialogue exercise. This will explore the extent to which members of the public feel agency and ownership in the UK’s research system; what could change to increase that agency and ownership; and how this could contribute to a society-centred vision for R&D. 

Expert Group

To help CaSE successfully deliver the project, we are being advised by a group of experts drawn from across the research system. Meet the group here.

Introducing the Project

The public dialogue exercise was officially launched in November 2023. You can read the announcement here.
