Top Scientists to advise Scottish Government - Refreshed science council to be launched 11 March

Twelve leading scientists, including Professor Lord Winston, an expert on science and society matters, and Professor James Hough, an international leader in the search for gravitational waves, have joined the specialist panel that advises the Scottish Government on science issues.

The Scottish Science Advisory Council (SSAC) is a group of 19 experts from the science and business community who provide the Scottish Government with independent advice on a range of science-related topics. This includes how best to capitalise on Scotland’s world-leading research base to benefit Scotland’s economy and its people.
