About us

We are one of seven Research Councils that work together as Research Councils UK (RCUK). We are funded by the Government's Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS).

Our budget for 2014-2015 is around £509M (£459M on research and capital grants and £50.5M for training and fellowships), and we support around 1600 scientists and 2000 research students in universities and institutes across the UK.
