Engineering in government: follow up to the 2009 report on Engineering: turning ideas into reality - Science and Technology Committee Contents


3  Conclusions

19.  Since the 2009 report Engineering: turning ideas into reality, the Government and engineering community have made progress in integrating engineering expertise and concerns into the formulation of policy. The formation of the Engineering the Future alliance as a coordinated voice for the professional engineering community and the ongoing efforts of the Government Chief Scientific Adviser in raising the profile of engineering advice are particularly commendable. However, there is no room for complacency and the Government must ensure that engineering continues to have a high profile in policy, and particularly in policy development.
