About Science & Technology
To secure the best environment for the chemical sciences to flourish the RSC develops and supports science and technology policy and activities in chemical biology; environment, sustainability and energy; industry and technology; materials chemistry and analytical sciences as well as the in the core chemical sciences of inorganic, organic and physical chemistry.
Many RSC members share common goals of establishing and promoting research, education and training and are recognised by the RSC as the primary source of expertise and policy advice on a huge range of issues.
In addition, strong links with Parliament help the RSC to influence and guide policy in partnership with the chemical sciences community.
The RSC Science Policy Board (SPB) advises RSC Council on all matters of policy relating to the pursuit of research in chemical science and the application of such science.
The current Chairman of SPB is Dr Ray Elliott CChem FRSC.
