Research Committees A-D have an important role in assessing responsive mode funding applications. Each Committee has a Core membership that is complemented at a meeting by additional members drawn from the Pool of Experts. This Core/Pool mode of operation ensures the appropriate expertise is available to assess the applications received.
Core and pool members bring important assessment skills and expertise to BBSRC and also gain valuable insights into how grants are assessed. For information about serving on a Committee or Pool of Experts see the Committee/Pool membership link below.
A list of all members attending each meeting is published following each meeting on each of the Research Committee pages (see links below).
Research Committee E assess fellowship applications and other personal awards.
*Science Technology Engineering and Maths – Committee C will consider generic STEM approaches to biology; specific applications will be considered by the Committee providing the appropriate biological context.
