    There is an opportunity for eight people from business, not-for-profit and academia to join the Prime Minister's Council for Science and Technology (CST).

The Prime Minister’s Council for Science and Technology (CST) is the Government’s top-level advisory body on science and technology issues. It reports directly to the Prime Minister on matters of science and technology that cut across the responsibilities of government departments. It is co-chaired by the Government Chief Scientific Adviser and an independent appointee.

The Council:
The Council is looking to renew its membership from January 2020. We are looking for eight new members from:

•    business – large and small; across industry sectors: applications from technology manufacturing, digital services, and the financial sector would be particularly welcome;

•    not-for-profit organisations with a research or ‘science and society’ focus;

•    academia

•    The role of CST members is to bring a variety of perspectives from senior people within academia, business and the voluntary sector to help Government in developing and delivering sound evidence-based policy. 

The Council members work on a wide breath of issues and will need the ability to work across disciplines. The Council will consult regularly with Government on its work programme.

For more information and how to apply, please see here

The closing date for applications is 2 August 2019.
