Petition Spend 1% of bioscience funding on public engagement – which means education too

Getting Bioscience Policy Right is a 21st Century Challenge Every Democracy Must Rise To

We will only get this right for all if everyone plays their part

Our campaign - A truly public bioscience: empowering and educating the public, so its voice is always heard

More details

We need a different approach in which the power to decide on things that could affect us all is more evenly spread

We need a far better-informed public in order to reach a consensus about how we should use these technologies

Sign our petition urging the UK government to pledge just 1% of their spending for bioscience R&D and infrastructure on “public engagement – which means education too” and urge the life sciences industry to match that spending.
