We invited young people from the CREST Youth Panel and the National Science + Engineering Competition youth volunteers to input into a report being created by Science is Vital regarding the governments planned budget changes for 2013. The report was concerned with researchers opinion of how budget changes would affect their research, job security and the place of the UK as a world leader in research and was presented to the Rt Hon David Willets MP. The students acted as a focus group and fed into the document as future young researchers. The report prompted a meeting between the Science is Vital team and MPs where the addition of the youth voice element was noted as a positive addition.
