20% of UK Workforce has a Science Job

The Financial Times has reported that approximately one fifth of the UK workforce has a science based job.

5.8 million people are scientists or use science skills daily, the Science Council has discovered in a recent study. The number includes ‘secondary science workers’ such as nurses or software engineers. Scientists were found to be in industries as diverse as education, finance and farming, as well as more traditional scientific sectors, such as the chemical industry.

Chief executive of the Science Council, Diana Garnham, has said that secondary science roles can be “found literally everywhere in the economy.” The research indicates that by 2030, there could be over 7 million people involved in science in some way, prompting Diana Garnham to say “the research begins to explain… why there is such huge demand for people with science qualifications.”

CK Science Sponsor Kilimanjaro Climb

Mount_Kilimanjaro_2007CK Science, the leading specialist scientific recruitment consultancy, will be sponsoring a charity climb up Kilimanjaro.

The climb has been organised to raise money and awareness for children’s hospice, Hope House in Oswestry. It takes over £4million each year to run the hospice and they are currently caring for over 320 terminally ill children and their families. This doesn’t just include the physical, psychological and spiritual care for the children affected, but also bereavement support, in all its forms, for the siblings and other family members left behind. Hope House also offers bereavement services to the larger community, helping a wide number of children over an extremely traumatic time in their lives. At this time 93 families are receiving post bereavement support.

DSCF0965Hope House currently received only £300,000 of funding from the government each year and the other £3,700,000 is raised by events such as this.

It is hoped that the Kilimanjaro climb will raise a minimum of £4,000. This money will go a small way to help the staff of Hope House ease the final days of terminally ill children.

If you would like to make a donation, please go to www.justgiving.com and search under TRUDY KEDDIE.

Increase Investment in Science to Boost Economy

scienceAccording to a report by The Royal Society, if the UK does not invest heavily in science and scientific research, it will face decades of sluggish economic decline.

The report warned that Britain’s current advantage is in danger of being wiped out by the US, China, India, France and Germany who have increased spending in science to help boost their economies. For instance, the German government has said it will increase their budget for education and research by 12bn Euros by 2013.

Sir Martin Taylor, chair of the report’s advisory group stated: “As France announces a new €35bn investment in the knowledge economy, the UK cuts university budgets by £600m, with the threat of more to come.

“The UK has been in the top two of the scientific premier league for the last 350 years. It would seem obvious that politicians would recognise the need to invest in this competitive advantage rather than cutting funds.”

Lord Waldegrave, former Science Minister and provost of Eton College said: “Times are tough but this is exactly when you need to invest in the future and focus spending where you already have an advantage.

“Investment in science cannot be turned on and off on a political whim – we must have a long-term investment. If we cut science now, just as the benefits of nearly twenty years of consistent policy are really beginning to bear fruit, we will seriously damage our economic prospects.”

The report praises the fact that patents granted to UK universities have increase by 136% between 2000 and 2008, and that university spin outs employed 14,000 people in 2007/2008 with a turnover of £1.1bn. However, it seems that research and development is a weakness for the UK – in 2007 British companies spent 1.14% of GDP on R&D while in the US spent 1.9% and Germany 1.8%.

Experts in the field recommend the following to help remedy the situation:

  • Creating a 15 year framework for science and innovation with increased spending.
  • Prioritising investment in scientific skills and infrastructure, such as laboratories and equipment.
  • Better aligning science and innovation with global challenges.
  • Revitalising science and mathematics education.
  • And expanding the R&D tax credit.

Lord Sainsbury, the former science minister and member of the advisory group said: “We cannot compete with countries such as China and India on the basis of low wages, and science and innovation must, therefore, be the basis of the strategy for growth which we need to have as we go into a tough period of fiscal consolidation.”
