MP-Scientist Pairing Scheme aims to build bridges between some of the best research workers in the country and members of the UK parliament. The scheme starts with 'Westminster week'; a programme of activities for the scientists including seminars, workshops, shadowing opportunities and a tour of Westminster. This 'week' aims to give the scientist a taste not only of the approach to science policy but of Parliament and the Civil Service in general. The 'week' takes place in October or November each year.
