From lab bench to front bench: British Library TalkScience report

Last month, I took part in an excellent debate about science and politics in the British Library’s TalkScience series, with Imran Khan from the Campaign for Science and Engineering, Chris Tyler from the Centre for Science and Policy at Cambridge University, and Alice Jones, a psychologist from Goldsmiths University who was a participant in last year’s Royal Society scientist-MP pairing scheme.

Kate Sloyan, a PhD student at the Optoelectronics Research Centre, University of Southampton, has written up an good account for the CaSE blog.

A full audio recording of the evening is also available as a British Library podcast.
