Three PhD students from the Faculty of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) have taken part in a Science Question Time with the UK government’s Universities and Science Minister, Jo Johnson, the Chief Scientific Officer, Sir Mark Walport, and Members of the House of Commons Science and Technology Select Committee.
Voice of the Future 2017, which was organised by the Royal Society of Biology on behalf of the science and engineering community, gave young scientists and engineers the opportunity to speak to politicians and policy makers about issues of science policy that matter to them.
Open University PhD students Radka Gromnicova, Rhian Chapman and Yasmin Bokhari-Friberg quizzed the minister on government plans about air pollution and the development of spaceports.
Voice of the Future is in its sixth year, and The Open University is the only university to take part alongside prestigious organisations including the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Royal Society
and the Institute of Physics.
