POST is Parliament's in-house source of independent, balanced and accessible analysis of public policy issues related to science and technology.
POST's aim is to help parliamentarians examine science and technology issues effectively. By writing briefings, organising events and assisting Select Committees, we have supported parliamentarians in their decision-making since 1989.
Updates from POST on the latest news, events and Parliamentary debates.
POST publishes 20-30 POSTnotes (short briefing notes) each year, along with occasional longer reports and short POSTboxes. They focus on current science and technology issues and aim to anticipate policy implications for parliamentarians.
POST's work falls into five main areas. Projects being carried out by POST staff and fellows are listed in this section, as well as projects that have been approved by the Board but not yet begun.
POST runs seminars, receptions and other events on science and technology topics.
With funding from the Gatsby Charitable Foundation, POST is running a programme to help African parliaments strengthen their capacity in science and technology.
POST runs several fellowship schemes with Research Councils, learned societies and charities, through which PhD students are sponsored to spend three months working at POST
