Science Strategy Launch

Dave, Rob & Phil provide a stand for the launch of the Science Strategy for Wales. For 45 minutes before the presentation by Prof Harries we were bombarded with interested experts & non experts.

Prof. Harries gave an impassioned plea for the academic community in Wales to work together to try to match Scotland’s achievements. The headline catching part of his presentation is the £50m to bring in top scientists but will they stay and what is he going to do to build up the ground level workers to support them. PhD students are the bedrock of chemisty and EPSRC’s policies are having a dramatic effect on the number of PhD places situated in Wales.

Professor John Harries, the Chief Scientific Adviser for Wales, at 5.45pm for 6.30pm, Julian Hodge Building, Colum Road, Cardiff CF10 3EU.
Thursday, 15 March 2012, Julian Hodge Building, Colum Drive, Cardiff CF10 3EU
