Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) provides briefings for politicians on issues in science and technology to allow them to better understand the issues we are facing.

POST regularly produces short briefing notes for politicians on topical issues, presenting current research and scientific knowledge in an accessible manner. POST also organises events that connect Parliamentarians to leading experts from the research community and other sectors, including government, the third sector and business. Most of POST's briefings are prepared by sponsored fellows (PhD students and PhD graduates). Fellowship positions are regularly open for application; please see their web page for further information.

When a policy briefing note is being prepared on a topic with relevance to microbiology, SfAM will work to connect the expertise within our membership with POST.
