Science & Technology Advisory Council

Independent strategic advice, challenge and support

The Science and Technology Advisory Council (STAC) provides independent strategic advice, challenge and support to the National Physical Laboratory, particularly on the quality, international standing and industrial relevance of NPL's science and technology.

Primarily, the Council commissions appropriate independent reviews to assess the quality of NPL's work against international benchmarks, which occurs on a three to four yearly cycle.

NPL's Distinguished Visitor Programme invites renowned experts and leaders from the business world, academia, government and the third sector to work with NPL.
