With the economy still struggling, and the Government's next Spending Review rumoured to be moved forward to 2013, the time is now to start planning how we will defend science funding in the UK from its next major threat - which will almost certainly be more serious than in 2010. Our evening's agenda will also include asking for input on how you want to shape this organization and its strategies and priorities. In addition to the formal AGM, we will have a line-up of interesting speakers, entertainers and **free cake**, so it should be a fun evening.

Also, please do join us afterwards at the Jeremy Bentham pub, where there'll be drinks and free food.

Organiser

Science Is Vital

Science is Vital is a grassroots campaign of UK scientists and supporters of science who believe that a strong science base is vital to the UK’s economy and reputation. Formed in 2010 as a response to threatened government cuts to science, we’ve incorporated as a formal group to remain on call to speak for the interests of scientists and UK science. But we remain a strictly grassroots organisation: we are all volunteers; working scientists, ex-scientists and non-scientists. We have no funding and give freely of our own time and resources to campaign.
