Why we do it

Science is the pursuit and application of knowledge and understanding of the natural and social world following a systematic methodology based on evidence.

In an ever-changing world the advancement of science and the maintenance and improvement of the professionalism of scientists is essential if we are to help humanity meet its challenges head on and find the right solutions.

The Science Council is here to ensure that the quality and safety of the science our scientists carry out is used for the public good by creating a safer and more sustainable future for all of us.
