Funding equality and diversity

We recognise that excellence in science requires diversity and equality to promote innovation and creativity. 

We seek to ensure that equality principles are applied to all funding activities, and consider that no one should be excluded or hindered from a career in science because of their:

  • Sex
  • Ethnic background
  • Age
  • Disability
  • Sexual orientation
  • Religion or belief
  • Pregnancy or maternity
  • Marriage or civil partnership (protected characteristics as defined in the Equality Act 2010)

Any issues that may arise throughout the funding process, regarding equality and diversity, should be directed to:

Specific Je-S guidance

We strive to operate fair and non-discriminatory processes in the provision of funding support. Completing your personal details on Je-s will help us to monitor and improve our processes and services to all concerned.

All personal details are stored confidentially and will not be used in any way that could lead to individuals being identified.

In so doing, the BBSRC Data protection Act, Code of Practice (see the Human Resources guidance in related links above) will apply at all times.
