The ‘Science Advice in the UK’ report aims to inform other governments about the evolution and function of science advice in the UK, illustrating how structures and processes have been developed and embedded, highlighting key strengths and attributes, as well as articulating where the tensions and challenges lie. More broadly, it aims to stimulate reflection and dialogue amongst those working in research and policy – and at their intersection – on what has been learnt in the UK so far. The report draws on insights from current and former scientific advisers, civil servants, evidence ‘brokers’ and intermediaries, and academics.
This report was commissioned but the UK Science and Innovation Network.
The report is available to download here and on the gov.uk website in both English and Spanish.
