Call for applications: Royal Society Pairing Scheme 2014

Royal Society Pairing Scheme for Scientists, Parliamentarians and Civil Servants

The Royal Society Pairing scheme offers scientists working in industry or academia the opportunity to understand the policy process and explore methods of sharing their knowledge with Government. Scientists will spend time together in their Laboratory and in turn in their paired MP’s constituency or Civil Servant’s Government office. All scientists will participate in a ‘Week in Westminster’ providing a valuable insight into how science policy is formed.
