Aldes was founded in 1991 to provide the party with a source of expertise on policy issues in science, technology, engineering and medicine. We have over 250 members hailing from a wide range of backgrounds including many with no formal technical training, but with an interest in developing policy for the challenges of tomorrow.
We host regular fringe discussions at the party’s conferences: recent topics include the EU’s role in science research, making, opportunities for collaboration with China, and the engineering skills gap. We also draft briefing notes and policy papers on topics in the STEM sector.
If you believe the party needs a good source of well-informed advice on technical issues and want to play a part in supporting that, please get in touch.
