Summary

A review panel has provided an independent scientific evaluation of the research supported in responsive mode through our Agri-Food Committee (AF) over the last 10 years.

Objectives

  • To assess the quality of the research supported
  • To identify major outcomes arising from the research
  • To consider whether AF is currently funding the most appropriate areas of UK bioscience
  • To identify ways to build on successes and address any identified gaps and issues

Evaluation findings

The panel based their findings on:

  • Results of questionnaire surveys from a sample of:
    • Current and past grant holders
    • Current and past AF committee members
    • Other relevant funding organisations
  • Final reports from the sample completed grants
