"Our research indicates that there are particular shortages of STEM skills at technician level, but an oversupply in other areas, such as biological science graduates, who are then often underemployed in an economy in which they are not in high demand," said the report.

Sadly successive UK governments sat back and did nothing while pharma life sciences R&D contracted sharply in the last decade or so.

I'm also slightly confused about why there are too few "technicians" and too many biological sciences graduates. There are many technicians (wth degrees) in biology labs...
