Why governments need scientists
In-person attendance now fully booked. Online attendance still open.
Sir Patrick Vallance was the UK Government’s Chief Scientific Advisor during the covid pandemic and had a higher public profile than any other scientist in that position. His experience gives him a unique perspective to address the question “Why Governments need Scientists”.

The talk is hosted by the OMS Director, Sir Charles Godfray, and the Director of the Oxford Vaccine Group, Sir Andrew Pollard.
