Accepting the position at the Council’s AGM, Sir Tom Blundell said he was looking forward to taking forward the Science Council’s vision for the different disciplines and professions within science to work more closely together. “Promoting high standards of professionalism at all levels in the practice of science is crucial if the UK is to maintain a strong science and innovation sector that will help grow the economy, serve society and be trusted by the public. Investment in science and innovation remains a high priority and by bringing together such a wide range of science organisations the Science Council can play a pivotal role in shaping priorities.” Dawne Riddle
