What we do

The Council for Science and Technology (CST) advises the Prime Minister on science and technology policy issues which cut across the responsibilities of government departments. The council is supported by a secretariat based in the Government Office for Science in BIS.

CST is an advisory non-departmental public body of the Department for Business, Innovation & Skills.
