BBSRC has published its Delivery Plan for 2016/17 to 2019/20. This follows the March announcement of funding to the Research Councils from the allocation of science and research funding 2016/17 to 2019/20. The plan recognises BBSRC’s unique role in supporting the UK’s world-leading bioscience research base in driving scientific advances, and in exploiting the transformative power of bioscience for the widest possible benefit.


Research Councils UK (RCUK) has today launched an action plan to promote equality, diversity and inclusion in research, recognising its leadership role in driving a change in culture. This follows RCUK’s Statement of Expectations for Equality and Diversity, published in 2013, and outlines our ambitions to lead by example in ensuring a diverse workforce; challenge bias and work towards fair and inclusive funding processes; and lead and support change in the research community.


BBSRC is looking to appoint suitably qualified and motivated individuals from academia, industry and other BBSRC user communities to join our Pool of Experts, Strategy Advisory Panels and Follow-on-Fund Committee. This is an opportunity to work with other highly experienced people from across the academic, public, private and civil sectors to make an important contribution to the future direction of bioscience research.
