Government Office for Science begin six-month pilot on campus

28 Oct 2022

GO-Science will be developing relationships and connections with our academics on projects of interest, and as part of the collaboration, they have produced a survey to establish levels of researcher interactions

Sir Patrick Vallance, Government Chief Scientific Advisor commented: “We are looking forward to expanding our connections and working with The University of Manchester more closely on topics of mutual interest. Collaboration can only lead to better outcomes for the Government policy decision making process.”

Professor Richard Jones, Vice President for Regional Innovation and Civic Engagement, Professor Luke Georghiou, Deputy President and Deputy Vice Chancellor, and John Holden, Associate Vice-President for Major Special Projects recently welcomed Sir Patrick Vallance to campus. This was an opportunity to kickstart the pilot and agree collaborative ways of working.

"Welcoming GO-Science on to campus for this pilot is an excellent example of how our leading research can feed into policy making and we look forward to supporting those wider agendas through the wealth of expertise that we have here at Manchester,” added President and Vice-Chancellor Professor Nancy Rothwell.

Policy@Manchester has been working to develop these kinds of relationships with Government over the last few years and has supported a number of our academics to forge these connections around their areas of expertise. As part of that collaboration GO-Science has produced a survey to establish what level of interactions our researchers currently have established. 

  • We would be grateful if our academics could complete the survey by Thursday, 10 November, in order to enable us to better support your activities.
