As major political parties release their manifestos ahead of the coming general election, our Director of Science Policy, Dr Jo Reynolds, explains what our priorities will be under the new government.
Last week a number of major political parties released their manifestos, outlining their commitments to the electorate across a range of issues. We have seen party leaders face each other in debates, as well as being probed by journalists in advance of the UK general election on 8 June.
All parties have prioritised supporting economic growth across the UK and each has set out its approach to securing the best outcomes for the UK as it leaves the EU. Many have shared their broad plans for science, innovation and education in their manifestos, including spending proposals and the role of universities. You can find out more about the proposals published so far in the links below.
