Support Science is Vital – Sign the Petition
‘Science is Vital’ has been established by the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) – known as ‘Save British Science’ in the 1980s. This is a non-party political organisation.
Science is vital kicked off with a Facebook campaign led by a group of scientists. They have teamed up with support from the Campaign for Science & Engineering to start a group called Science is Vital calling on concerned scientists, engineers and supporters of science to sign their petition and campaign to prevent destructive levels of cuts to science funding in the UK.
They’re basically aiming to noisily demonstrate the weight of concerns across the UK over the decisions the Government is currently making and ensure there is a recognisable lobby group for them to listen to.
The campaign focuses on a clear call – the petition asks the Government: “to recognize that science is vital, and to lay out a supportive strategy for UK science and engineering, maintaining a level of investment at least in line with economic growth”
