On Tuesday 12th March, six representatives of the Geological Society were lucky enough to head down to the House of Commons in Westminster to quiz MPs on topics relating to science and policy for Voice of the Future 2019.
The annual Parliamentary Links Day is an opportunity for science organisations to discuss current issues in science policy with representatives from government responsible for science and research. Unsurprisingly, this year’s theme was ‘Science after the referendum: what next?’
Early career scientists had the opportunity to experience how science interacts with government policy, at Parliament’s annual Voice of the Future event on Tuesday 1st March.
Every year, young scientists and engineers have the opportunity to question key political figures at the Houses of Parliament, about science policy issues which matter to them. The researchers are nominated by various institutions and Learned Societies, and the Geological Society is currently looking for a number of representatives to attend the event.
