Policy & Public Affairs

The Science Council provides a voice on policy issues affecting the science community, fostering debate and the exchange of ideas.

Using our convening power, we bring together our member organisations with a wide range of stakeholders to build consensus around pan-scientific issues. We provide a conduit between our community and policymakers around the common priorities and challenges of our members. In policy areas where there is a divergence of opinion across the membership, we provide trusted fora for discussion and knowledge exchange.

If you have any questions related to the policy work of the Science Council please direct them to Ryan Mercer.
