Royal Society of Biology responds to inquiry on the STEM skills gap
The Science and Technology Select Committee recently launched an inquiry into closing the STEM skills gap, after receiving repeated evidence that the UK is facing a STEM skills shortage. The Royal Society of Biology (RSB) welcomed the Committee’s inquiry and submitted a response earlier this month, which has now been published.
The Society’s response highlighted some of the key issues around uptake of STEM careers, as well as projects that are currently being undertaken in the bioscience sector that are working to address the skills gap.
