Science: As Vital As Ever

With the government’s spending review coming up in about a month, research is again under threat. Grassroots pressure group Science is Vital is springing into action with a new campaign.

Please tweet, retweet, share and like! And feel free to get in contact if you have any questions about the Scienceogram or science funding you would like answered.

Help spread the word

Please tell your friends and colleagues about the Scienceogram! We don’t think many people have looked at government funding of science in quite this way, and the more people are aware of it, the more people can come to an informed opinion about the level of spending.

Scienceogram international

Most of the figures on this website are UK-based, but we’d love to create a collection of international Scienceograms for countries around the world! Get in touch if you might be interested in taking on this challenge for your country…
