The University of Sussex is proud to have become a member of the Campaign for Science and Engineering (CaSE).

CaSE is the UK’s leading independent advocate for science and engineering and campaigns to ensure that the UK has the skills, funding and policies to enable science and engineering to thrive.

The body represents more than 115 scientific organisations including businesses, universities, professional bodies, and research charities as well as individual scientists and engineers.

Collectively CaSE members employ over 336,000 people in the UK, and our industry and charity members invest around £32.2bn a year globally in R&D.

CaSE was launched in 2005 and evolved out of its predecessor Save British Science (SBS).

Professor Adam Tickell, Vice-Chancellor, University of Sussex, said: "Our world faces a number of pressing and complex challenges and it is incumbent upon the global scientific community to work together, share knowledge and develop innovative and sustainable solutions.

"I believe the UK is best placed to lead this effort, which is why I am proud for the University of Sussex to join the Campaign for Science and Engineering.

"We will use our pioneering, interdisciplinary spirit to help push for real progress, backed by the best science."

CaSE Executive Director Dr Sarah Main, said:"We are delighted to welcome the University Of Sussex as new organisational members of CaSE. Their perspective as one of the top research-intensive universities in the country, firmly rooted in their community, will enhance CaSE's advocacy and expertise.

“As recent events have underlined, cutting-edge research and innovation has a vital role to play in providing the economic, societal and health benefits to enrich lives here in the UK and around the world.

“We look forward to bringing the University of Sussex's voice to bear alongside our broad coalition of organisational members to boost the science and engineering standing of the UK."
