Life Sciences Manufacturing Academy

The teaching and assessment of Science should therefore be personalised to enable all pupils, of all backgrounds, and abilities, to achieve the highest understanding that they can in Science and acquire the skills required to be a good Scientist. Where pupils have difficulties with their understanding, intervention should be made to support them in making progress towards their goals. All pupils should leave school equipped to understand the world around them and Sciences place in the world.

Already, a small number of African academies are trying science lobby hats on for size. “We lobby for government funding for science and yes, it has made a difference,” says Paul Nampala, executive secretary of the Uganda National Academy of Sciences. Sir Adrian Smith, President of the Royal Society, said, “Science and technology are at the heart of many of the solutions the world needs.

The Elsevier Foundation has partnered with GenderInSITE since 2011 in an advisory capacity and contributed funds to a series of education and innovation focused workshops. 2021 could be a historic turning point for renewed global coordination on climate change, reversing biodiversity decline, and global health emergencies. Our two-week programme introduces school leavers to life science manufacturing.

He has previously worked as a science news editor at Nature, New Scientist, and SciDev.Net. In 2018, he completed the Knight Science Journalism Program at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology in Cambridge, US, where he researched the use of machine learning and artificial intelligence in science journalism. He is also immediate former chairman of the Association of British Science Writers, and a board member of the European Federation for Science Journalism. Of course, African governments will expect to steer the resulting investment so that it translates into development-friendly innovations and policies, rather than ivory-tower output that fails to benefit society. But that is a fair price to pay to create a sustainable, vigorous African science base. Thornton caused a stir at the ASADI meeting because he dared use the word “lobbying” to describe the society’s actions.

The lesson then went to home schools for students to produce their own periodic table from memory. Our work to ‘promote social science in the UK for public benefit’ is guided by our strategy. We inform and advocate to enhance and safeguard social science; we showcase its importance and use; we facilitate knowledge exchange to policy on issues of national importance; we foster multi-disciplinary approaches and innovation. Striving for successful outcomes and impact underpins all our work. Our impact influences how well social sciences are understood, flourish in academia, and used beyond. Ultimately this enhances decision-making, society and social science.
