Impact of science funding cuts   info
British science has taken three sucker punches since July 2006. In February 2007, £68m was taken away from the research councils - money that had been ring-fenced for science. In October 2006, far-reaching changes were announced to the eligibility criteria for research council funding. And in July 2006, all Defra's agencies and public bodies were instructed to make in-year cuts to their budgets. This briefing looks at the impact of all these cuts.

Charter for British science   info
Today there is no central oversight for the health of the nation's science base. Who is looking after British science? Prospect's charter spells out what needs to be done to protect public science.

Who's looking after Defra science?   info
This is the third in our series of briefings about public sector science. It looks at the work carried out by scientists in the Department for the Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, which touches many areas of our daily life: water, food, air, land, people, animals and plants.

Who's looking after Scottish science?   info
This briefing document continues Prospect's efforts to highlight the value of public sector science, and to raise awareness of funding cuts and laboratory closures. It focuses on a number of key Scottish research institutes, and was officially launched at a union lobby of the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday 14 June 2006.
