We were delighted to welcome the new Government Chief Scientific Adviser, Dr Patrick Vallance, to speak at the Institute for Government.

Dr. Vallance discussed how the Government should address the challenges facing the science community, international collaborations after Brexit, and how it can make best use of scientific evidence. In his new role, Dr. Vallance is responsible for providing advice on topics as varied as artificial intelligence, emerging pandemic diseases and climate change.

He was in conversation with Bronwen Maddox, Director of the Institute for Government.
