Posted by ALPHA88 CHARITY | Jan 11, 2019

The Conservative leadership candidates have been urged to make a pledge to put scientific research at the heart of their economic policy.

Scientific bodies have called on Jeremy Hunt and Boris Johnson to set out their long-term plans for research.
They want them to commit to ensuring that the UK remains a world leader in research and innovation.
There is also alarm that the political uncertainty is stalling efforts to develop a strategy for UK science.

The president of the UK's Royal Society, Prof Sir Venki Ramakrishnan, told BBC News that the uncertainty "could threaten the research and innovation that are vital for the long-term health of our economy".
