Making sense of science spending

Tell Them Science is Vital

Today marks the start of British Science Week and, hot on the heels of the release of new figures showing the UK at the bottom of the G8 for government-funded research, campaign group Science is Vital are launching a new campaign, Tell Them Science is Vital.

They are asking supporters of science to contact their local MP and parliamentary candidates during British Science Week, to let them know how important science is to them and the community. Visit to spread the word and get involved!

Scienceogram has been helping out producing some graphics for the campaign, which you can find below. Feel free to share them on social media, send them to your friends or colleagues, or take them to show your MP!

Factsheet and poster

Scienceogram has produced a two-side summary of UK science funding to send to or show your MPs and candidates, and a poster (in colour and greyscale) to advertise this campaign for you to put up in your workplace or elsewhere. You can download the PDFs below.
