SET for Britain
I guess not many people get to present their work at the Houses of Parliament so I feel pretty lucky! I must say it’s no easy task presenting your research to MPs, but it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience.
I managed to discuss some of the overarching aspects of my research but attention quickly turned to the state of Science and Higher education funding. The prospects for UK science funding certainly seem bleak, despite what Brian Cox and David Willetts MP (Minister of State for Universities and Science) had to say.
Overall I feel events like this are important if we are to stress the importance of science funding to those holding the purse strings, I hope I contributed to that effort.
