The Gallery | Story of government engineers

Civil service professional body Government Science and Engineering (GSE) has released a picture story showcasing the work of scientists and engineers across government.

It said that the GSE story was a visual history of its important work carried out over the centuries.

The work, by head of government science and engineering Sir Mark Walport, is aimed at building pride in, raising the profile of, and encouraging fresh talent into the GSE profession.

As well as showcasing the important role that scientists and engineers have played across the centuries, the story also gives examples of innovation and collaboration happening today.

“The GSE story highlights how science advice and evidence adds value to government decision making,” said Walport. “It showcases examples of how the work undertaken by government scientists and engineers has an enduring global impact, in areas such as poverty, disease, climate change, crime and counter-terrorism.

“The story should be an inspiration for a new generation of scientists and engineers to join the Civil Service bringing fresh talent into the GSE profession.”
