Submission to the House of Commons Science and Technology Committee inquiry on the Science Budget

04 September 2015

The UK punches above its weight when it comes to excellence in research and higher education but this situation is unsustainable in the long-run without continued investment. We would like to see the proportion of GDP spent on excellent science and research increased in order for the UK to continue to be internationally competitive and to strengthen the pipeline for growth and jobs.

Any further cuts to the science budget would imply a real, long-term threat for the UK’s research, innovation and higher education systems.
