People, skills and training
As part of a programme of activities to mark its 20th anniversary BBSRC will create up to 15 new fellowships, allowing early-career scientists to carry out independent research and supporting their training to become research leaders.
As part of its 20th Anniversary programme BBSRC is working with 17 groups of leading scientists to develop exciting exhibitions about their bioscience and engage the British public. The scientists, from universities and research institutions across the UK, will use the funding to create engaging displays and activities to showcase their BBSRC-funded science.
Around £3Bn of Government funding is apportioned annually between the seven UK Research Councils. This investment creates a huge amount of information, which is held in the ‘Gateway to Research’ database and available for anyone to access online.
