BBSRC as an investor
Governance, decision making and peer review.
BBSRC funds research in many different ways and as the main UK public funder of non-clinical biosciences, we recognise that diversity is essential for excellence and increases our capacity to research, innovate and grow.
We are committed to ensuring that the best researchers from a diverse population are attracted into research careers and supporting these careers. We will ensure our funding mechanisms and processes do not present any potential barriers and bias to funding and ensure that people who are engaged with the processes, operate these fairly and without prejudice or bias.
We will be transparent and accountable to whom and how we fund research. We annually publish the diversity data for applications to, and membership of, our key decision making fora and will continue our work to achieve diversity in the membership of BBSRC Council, Strategy Advisory Panels and Research Committees.
