EPSRC Council assesses impact of reduction to EPSRC funding

Abstract:
The Council discussed a number of options and decided, after vigorous debate, that it must protect the prospects for young people looking to begin research as PhD students as much as it can. Therefore studentships will be protected at the expense of research grants. As a result, the Council will not be able to award £14M in grants (about 52 responsive mode grants) that it had planned to support in 2007/08. The remainder of the £29M will be found by withdrawal of support for the construction of new beamlines on the Diamond synchrotron light source, the cancellation of a number of IDEAS sandpits, the cancellation of additional equipment for nanotechnology and reductions in administrative costs.
