Last week was the second Science is Vital AGM!
What’s been happening?
It’s been a strange year for many of us, including the SiV team, but without getting all personal, we hope to be more active in the coming year, trying to address the threatened cuts to the science budget.
Dr Jenny Rohn (chair) began the meeting with a re-cap of the last year.
Some action points from last year could be picked up, including trying to get some local MPs to visit labs. But it has also been a good year; in the 2012 meeting the decision was made to focus on science funding and trying to influence decisions.
