Open call for topics for scrutiny: #MyScienceInquiry

The House of Commons Science and Technology Committee has decided again to create an open opportunity for the science community and the wider public to suggest science and technology areas for scrutiny.

 

The Committee would be interested to receive proposals from people it wouldn’t normally hear from, and for suggestions for work in areas that might otherwise escape its attention. This is your opportunity to get involved and suggest what issues the Committee should be exploring.

 

Proposals should outline in less than 200 words the nature of the issue that the Committee should explore, why it deserves attention, and how Government policy in this area could be developed or improved. Written suggestions can be submitted through the ‘My Science Inquiry’ page. The Committee will also accept proposals in the form of a video (up to one minute in length) tweeted to the Committee’s account (@CommonsSTC) using the #MyScienceInquiry hashtag. The deadline for proposals is 23.59 on Monday 17 December. A selection of the proposals will then be shortlisted for an opportunity to give a 10-minute pitch to the Committee in person at a public session to be held on Tuesday 29 January 2019.

 

For a list of inquiries that the Committee has already held in this Parliament, please check the Committee's website. If you have any further questions about the inquiry, please do not hesitate to get in touch with Katherine Mayes.
