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 BEIS.
Who we are
The council is co-chaired by the Government Chief Scientific Adviser and an independent chair. The council has 19 further independent members. CST members are not paid, but are reimbursed for travel and subsistence costs while on CST business.
