Role and Function of departmental Chief Scientific Advisors
20 November 2011
The RSC submission to House of Lords Science and Technology Select Committee inquiry into the role and function of departmental chief scientific advisors.
All major government departments now have a Chief Scientific Advisor (CSA); their role is of vital importance both as a source of scientific advice to policy makers and ministers, and to advise on all aspects of policy on science, engineering and technology.
This inquiry addressed views on the ability of CSAs to provide independent advice and challenge within their departments, the extent of their influence over research spend and the range of expertise provided by the network of CSAs.
