IN for ScienceVirtually all political subjects have some science based dimension. Yet while science provides options, politicians must decide outcomes. Relatively few scientists and those in the science-based professions of engineering, technology and medicine choose get involved in politics, and politicians often have a poor understanding of technical issues.

Aldes aims to bridge that gap. Political parties need people with know-how to generate innovative ideas and ensure policy has a foundation in evidence and understanding. Aldes has 3 main objectives:

  • To serve the Liberal Democrat party by providing specialist knowledge in policy development
  • To promote better understanding within the party of what science and those who use science – engineers and medics – can and can not do, and so create a positive image for science and technology.
  • To provide opportunities for fellowship and networking among engineers, scientists, technologists and medics in the party
