    DescriptionKieron Flanagan, professor of science and technology policy at the University of Manchester, told Times Higher Education that the sector should “show more curiosity about what ‘investment security’ means in this portfolio, and what it might tell us about this government’s vision of the place of science and innovation in public life”.

    “I assume it relates to the new national security and investment policies, which implies an instrumental view of research and a view that science and technology is part of the zero-sum competition between nations rather than a globally collaborative enterprise,” said Professor Flanagan.
