Science and Technology Committee (Lords)
Oral evidence concluded; report in preparation.
This short inquiry will assess the current system of research funding for universities in England. In the light of possible changes to tuition fees resulting from the Government's Review on Post-18 Education and Funding, and the Government's commitment to a target of 2.4% of GDP to be invested in research and development by 2027, the Committee will investigate what impact these changes may have on the ability of universities to conduct high-quality scientific research.
