Institute of Physics, London
At this Science Question Time event, we discussed science, growth, and how the latter could be defined and delivered. Science Question Time is now an established and successful venture between the Biochemical Society, the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE) and staff at Imperial College London. This was the seventh Science Question Time in London.
