The Academy of Medical Sciences responded to Sir Paul Nurse's request for evidence on how Research Councils can support research most effectively.Status: Ongoing
Review of the Research Councils by Sir Paul Nurse
In April 2015, the Academy submitted evidence to inform Sir Paul Nurse's review of the Research Councils. This review is seeking to explore how Research Councils can support UK research most effectively, and invest public money in the best possible way.
The submission drew on the expertise of our Fellowship and considers the balance of funding across the research ecosystem, and the need for ongoing strategic flexibility to tackle future societal challenges.
Our response builds on the Academy's submission to the Triennial Review in 2013 which examined structures for the delivery of public research funding, and on recent input into the review of business-university collaboration led by Dame Ann Dowling.
Sir Paul Nurse's review is expected to report in summer 2015.
