Science and Innovation Observatory
The science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) agenda is a high priority of the government, and we have recognised the need for informed thinking on policy and strategy in science and innovation, particularly relating to education and skills. The Science and Innovation Observatory, a collaboration between our centre and colleagues within the Centre for Science Education, is an attempt to meet this need.
