The Economic significance of the UK Science Base
The science and engineering community advocates public investment in the UK science base to drive economic growth. As an evidence-focused community, The Institute of Physics and it's partners sought a new independent examination of the economic and societal impact of such investment by commissioning a report, The Economic significance of the UK Science Base. The report extends previous studies by examining the contribution of the UK science base to our economy at the level of industry, universities, and individual researchers. It shows that, in each case, public investment in science and engineering leads to economic growth.
