The British Library is hosting the latest in their Talk Science series on 12th July, in partnership with the Research Information Network and Eureka.

The discussion will address current issues in Science Policy, including:

• What role will science play in the new Government?
• How will the scientific perspective be heard and understood across Parliament?
• How could the use of scientific evidence in policy-making be improved?
• With tightening budgets, what are the big issues that UK science faces?
• Should science funding be more elitist?
• Will the long-term impact of science ever be measurable?
