Providing a voice for science in the South West
South West Science Council achieves its aims through partnerships with industry, schools, universities, technical institutions, government departments and adult education.
The Council provides coordination and integration of scientific effort in a region that is increasingly recognised for its quality assured agrifood industries, mining and remediation, unique small businesses, biodiversity and tourism.
There are risks and challenges that need to be identified, evaluated and countered but also opportunities for smart solutions to be found and implemented. To fulfill these objectives the SWSC encourages and links academic, industry and applied researchers with local communities and organisations to improve community understanding, knowledge and participation in sustainable development of the region.
