Following the publication of the ‘Future of Science’ survey (July 2021), which further highlighted barriers to entry in STEM careers, Ipsen convened a steering committee of representatives from STEM Learning, the Association for the British Pharmaceutical Industry (ABPI), The Diversity Trust, the British Science Association (BSA) and Teach First. The committee agreed four key areas of focus where they feel progress could be made to help increase interest in STEM careers amongst young people and foster greater diversity in the future.
The steering committee meeting followed the publication of the findings from the ‘Future of Science’ survey, which was commissioned by Ipsen Ltd. in collaboration with New Scientist to understand 7- to 21-year-olds’ current perceptions of careers in science.
