Is Science Committee correct and/or more accurate than Scientific Committee?
I'm in a committee at a science lab where we organize events to promote the research done in-house. The committee is a normal committee and doesn't follow scientific principles (e.g. hypothesis, test/experiment, etc...)
I'm the only native English speaker in the committee and have asked that we call ourselves the "Science committee" and not the "Scientific committee" since we only discuss science, without actively doing it during committee meetings. We could equally discuss finance ("Finance committee" and not "Financial committee") or operations ("Operations committee" and not "Operational committee"... although that last one is debatable for many committees... :)
I've read "science fiction" vs "scientific fiction" which seems to indicate both historical and noun-modifier reasons for that convention.
