Future Debates is a series of public events supported by the British Science Association.

This year’s debates are on the topic of science funding and who does it. Does it matter if private companies fund science? Does private funding create bias in the research? How can we trust researchers?

David Game College, Aldgate, EC3N 2ET   |  22nd Nov 2017  |  Refreshments from 6:30, debate starts at 7 o’clock  |   FREE (booking required)

Future Debates events are part of the British Science Association’s work to make science a fundamental part of British society and culture.

As the London Branch, we believe that the answer to the question ‘ Does it matter who funds science?’ is an unequivocal ‘yes’.

We would like to focus this debate on the question “Where should the funding for science come from?”.

The debate will cover:

  • the current state of play for science funding
  • discuss the topic of public vs. private spending
  • the conflicts from private for-profit spending vs. pure research
  • case studies of for-profit private research

We look forward to welcoming you to the debate.
