Meet the team

The Sciencewise programme is run in a partnership between UK Research and Innovation, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy and Involve, a charity specialising in public engagement.

Our team is drawn from the three organisations. It includes both staff and associates from Involve.

We have a wealth of experience and expertise in dialogue and engagement, public policy and administration, project management and evaluation, and science and technology.
