Nicola Blackwood MP, Chair, Science and Technology Select Committee

Science and technology are key determinants of prosperity and growth but the impact and benefits of specific government policies are often hard to ascertain.

In a time of severe budgetary constraints, balancing priorities between sectors and short and longer term investment is challenging. Come and hear Nicola Blackwood MP discuss the overall importance of science and technology and the work and priorities of the Select Committee on Science and Technology.
