expert encounter: Prof David Nutt

Speakers:
Prof Gordon Conway, Professor of International Development, Imperial College London

Few people have had a greater influence on science in the developing world than Professor Gordon Conway, through his work as President of the Rockefeller Foundation through to his tenure as Chief Scientific Adviser to DFID where he expanded DFID’s research budget from £35 to £220 million to, a post from which he stood down in July. Now he is back at Imperial College London as Professor of International Development, where he is heading a small team with funding from the Gates Foundation to work with European donors on support for agricultural development in Africa. The SMC invited Prof Conway in for an Expert Encounter to talk about his long and varied career, and his current work.
