The Royal Society Update

A manifesto for UK science

Science and innovation drive the economy, create jobs and enrich our society. Whether it is Brexit, climate change, healthcare or the economy, all of the major issues that voters care about are underpinned by science, research and innovation. If the UK is to rise to these challenges, it is vital that the next government steps up its commitment and equips UK Science with the tools and support it needs to unlock its full potential.

The Royal Society has published a manifesto outlining key steps the next government must take in order to harness the potential of science to power a cutting edge UK.

Can we achieve five extra years of healthy older age?
