DIUS: Science in Society Strategy

21 December 2007

Royal Society response to Government's proposed vision for Science and Society

The proposed vision is for 'a Society that is excited about science, values its importance to our economic and social well-being, feels confident in its use, and supports a representative, well-qualified scientific workforce'. Such a vision complements a number of the Royal Society's strategic priorities as we approach our 350th anniversary in 2010, and beyond.

These are to:

  • Invest in future scientific leaders and in innovation
  • Influence policymaking with the best scientific advice
  • Invigorate science and mathematics education
  • Inspire an interest in the joy, wonder and excitement of scientific discovery
  • Increase access to the best science internationally
