Science and Society consultation (BIS UK)

The UK government’s department on Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) held a consultation in 2009 “on science and society in the UK to canvas views on how we should develop our skills base, improve science communications and build public confidence in science.”

The responsible minister sums up the outcome of the process on the official website as follows:

A significant outcome from the consultation is that respondents want us – Government – to take a more active role in coordinating science and society activity in the UK.

Five independent expert groups will take forward the key areas which emerged from the consultation, including establishing better evaluation methods and data sharing.
