The Scientific Activist

The Department for Innovation, Universities and Skills (DIUS), which is responsible for higher education in the UK, is seeking feedback to help it develop its new science strategy. The DIUS has put together a website for this purpose: interactive.dius.gov.uk/scienceandsociety/. There, you can read its latest report, comment on various sections of the report, or provide general feedback. I think that it’s great that the UK government is seeking this sort of feedback, so if you’re interested and have some time, go participate in this worthy endeavor.

    That’s quite interesting, I doubt I’ll have time to do much in the next few months, but I’ll certainly keep an eye on it. Of course, the cynic in me wants to point out that they’ve had rather a lot of feedback already from the scientific community, which has been largely ignored :S
