News Story - Paul Rodhouse appointed to Science Innovation and Strategy Board
Date: 21 Sep 2010
Professor Paul Rodhouse, biological oceanographer with the British Antarctic Survey, has been appointed to the Science and Innovation Strategy Board (SISB) of the Natural Environment Research Council. SISB is responsible for developing the NERC science strategy, and advising the Council on funding of new programmes and initiatives.
“I am pleased and honoured to be appointed to SISB. Public funded science has to work extremely hard to make every taxpayer’s pound work to maximum effect and this is a vital time for strategic planning. Recessionary cycles must stimulate critical thinking about how the world will look in the future, what science will be needed and how to place ourselves to capitalise on the opportunities that will arise. I look forward to working with the SISB team to develop this thinking”
