The theme for the Royal Academy Annual Science Policy Meeting and the White Paper 2018 is ”Researcher-based education at universities”. Not just research-based, but researcher-based because it is the individual researcher who disseminates knowledge based on their own, and others, research. Teaching and transfer of knowledge from researcher to students has taken place at quality universities for almost a thousand years. Not just as one-way communication, but as a true academic dialogue between students and and educators.
