Welcome

Our portfolio covers two main areas. Excellence in International Science is all about innovation, with the stress on partnership and wealth creation. Understanding Science in Society is about the relevance of science to culture and social well-being.

The former fosters collaboration with scientists, engineers and research managers through face-to-face contact and networking. The latter promotes awareness amongst the public and policymakers with exhibitions, debates, lectures, seminars, events and information.

Our work in health offers practitioners and policy makers an opportunity to find out more about health provision and access to clinical medical training in the UK.
