Public Accounts Committee – Report on Capital Investment in Science Projects

The Public Accounts Committee has published its report on Capital investment in science projects.

The Committee has urged the Government to adopt a “more consistent and evidence-based approach to spending on science projects”.

It says the Government should also do more to protect the intellectual property that results from taxpayers’ investment and to secure the benefits for the UK economy. It also calls on the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills to ensure all investment decisions are based on full business cases, to include “assessments of alternative options and locations, potential demand for the project and expected running costs”.
