Event Details

What has science ever done for us? 


At the beginning of next year, the Government will auction the UK's 4G mobile spectrum netting up to £4 billion for the Treasury.  The 4Growth campaign, launched by the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) and Nesta calls for the Government to reinvest the proceeds back into science, engineering, technology and innovation.

 

Join us for a free evening of discussion on Tuesday 11th December, kindly hosted by the Institution of Engineering and Technology, to discuss the campaign as well as the wider role of science and technology in our society and economy.

 

Speakers so far include:

Jonathan Flint CBE - Chief Executive, Oxford Instruments

Dr Ben Goldacre - best selling author of Bad Science and Bad Pharma, broadcaster, medical doctor and academic.

Professor Mariana Mazzucato - R.M. Phillips Professor in Science and Technology Policy at the Science Policy Research Unit (SPRU) and author of The Entrepreneurial State.

 

The event will be Chaired by Louise Marston - Head of Innovation and Economic Growth at Nesta.
