SCIENCE IS VITAL CAMPAIGN
EDM #767
Tabled 16 September 2010
2010-12 Session
That this House notes the UK's proud history of excellence in science and engineering, whereby it produces over 10 per cent. of global scientific output with just one per cent. of global population; believes that continued investment in research is vital in order to meet the technological and social challenges of the 21st century, and to continue to attract high-tech industries to invest in the UK; further believes that large cuts to science funding are a false economy, due to evidence that research investment fuels economic growth; further notes the increased investment in science by the UK's international competitors, such as the USA, France and Germany; further believes that investment in research and development is vital to help rebalance the economy towards hi-tech manufacturing and away from over-reliance on financial services; recognises the work of the Science is Vital coalition and the Campaign for Science and Engineering in arguing that the UK should seek to retain its role as a world leader in these fields; and calls on the Government to safeguard the UK's scientific excellence by providing a research investment strategy which builds on the success of UK science and engineering.
