Members to see at first hand the outstandingly high quality of research being carried out in UK universities and elsewhere; pays tribute to the late Dr Eric Wharton who founded this event a decade ago; greatly welcomes the leadership in organising SET for Britain of the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee, and leading scientific bodies such as the Society of Biology, the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Physics, Royal Society of Chemistry, and others; and believes that the success of the UK in the competitive knowledge economy of the 21st century will depend on its world-class scientific and engineering expertise.
