My Science Inquiry

01 February 2017

The Science and Technology Committee received over 70 ideas for new inquiries through the "My Science Inquiry" open call. Nine of the suggestions have been selected for further consideration at this stage, through a 'Dragon's Den'-style session. Participants pitch their idea to the Committee for up to 10 minutes, and members will question them for 3 minutes each, to inform the Committee’s future programme of inquiries.
