The House of Lords Select Committee on Science and Technology launched an inquiry into the Setting of Science and Technology Research Funding Priorities on 31 July 2009, which was conducted by the main Committee.
The inquiry investigated how decisions are made to fund research to meet societal needs; the balance of funding for targeted versus unsolicited response-mode curiosity-driven research; and how research is commissioned in Government departments and agencies.
The Committee's report on Setting priorities for publicly funded research was published on Thursday 1 April 2010.
For further information on the inquiry please contact Christine Salmon Percival, Clerk to the Science and Technology Committee, either by telephone: 020 7219 6072 or by email: [email protected]
