DEFRA SCIENCE ADVISORY COUNCIL (SAC) OPEN MEETING
17 October 2007
Interested in how the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) obtains its scientific advice?
The Science Advisory Council (SAC) is Defra's most senior science non-departmental advisory body offering independent, strategic, expert advice to the Department's Chief Scientific Adviser (CSA), who in turn advises Ministers.
Members of the public are invited to SAC's next open meeting on 17 October 2007, to observe how their work is conducted, and network with Council members and Defra's new CSA, Professor Bob Watson.
The meeting will be held at Central Hall Westminster London SW1H 9NH, commencing at 9:30am and concluding by 4pm.
The Council will discuss its current and forthcoming work. Major discussion topics will include:
* The Climate Change Bill
* The use of social science in Defra
* How do Defra and the Devolved Administrations coordinate their science activity?
* Review of future Defra animal disease strategy
Attendees will be able to provide feedback to Council and participate in question and answer sessions.
Attendance is FREE but by advance registration as places are limited.
Refreshments will be provided.
