Biography

Dr Jack Stilgoe is a Lecturer in Social Studies of Science at Univeristy College London. He has spent his professional life in the overlap between science policy research and science policy practice, first at UCL’s department of Science and Technology Studies, then at the think tank Demos, then the Royal Society and most recently at the University of Exeter.

At Demos, he initiated and ran a range of projects, advising and working with organisations such as BIS, Defra, the Food Standards Agency, EPSRC, BBSRC, MRC, Practical Action, the Environment Agency, the European Space Agency, Unilever and Pfizer. At the Royal Society, he ran the study that produced the influential report The Scientific Century. He has published and presented his academic and policy research to audiences around the world. Working with academics, policymakers, the media and others, he has helped advance debates on emerging technologies, public engagement with science, the use of expert advice and the value of innovation.

He is on the editorial board of Public Understanding of Science, a member of the Government’s Sciencewise steering group and a Demos associate.
