Led by the chief scientific adviser, the science and research group includes specialists across the whole range of scientific disciplines.
The group includes physical scientists and engineers; economists, social researchers and operational researchers; statisticians; and veterinary, medical and biological scientists.
It has a vital role in underpinning the Home Office’s work, both policy and operations, with the best science and technology available:
- to ensure a sound evidence base to inform choices and development of policy
- to enable the front line to deliver
- to take the long view effectively, by appropriate horizon scanning and openness to new challenges and possibilities
- to take responsibility for regulation as required, and for bringing in the best external expertise through our scientific advisory committees
