POST is Parliament's in-house source of independent, balanced and accessible analysis of public policy issues related to science and technology.

The Parliamentary Office of Science and Technology (POST) produce balanced and accessible overviews of research from across the social and physical sciences, engineering and technology.  POST welcome input on current topics, and accept suggestions for future briefings.

POSTnotes are four page summaries of public policy issues based on reviews of the research literature and interviews with stakeholders from across academia, industry, government and the third sector. They are peer reviewed by external experts.

POST carries out horizon-scanning to anticipate issues of science and technology that are likely to impact on policy.
