Government Science and Engineering (GSE)

Government Science and Engineering (GSE) is a government-wide network supporting science and engineering across the civil service.

The community is led by the Government Chief Scientific Adviser and Government Head of Science and Engineering Profession (HoSEP), Professor Mark Walport.

We have over 3,000 members, making us one of the largest analytical communities in government. Members are drawn from staff with science and/or engineering qualifications or background or who work in a related area.

We offer:

  • opportunities to network with other scientists, engineers, and the wider analytical community both online and at events
  • invitations to events focusing on relevant professional issues
  • access to development schemes run in partnership with the Royal Society and the Royal Academy of Engineering
  • notification of secondment and job opportunities
  • information on Civil Service Learning and development initiatives and what they mean for GSE
  • a newsletter featuring the latest developments in science and engineering across government
