'Cry havoc and let slip the dogs of war!' bellowed RCUK, as they launched their fEC task force this week. Well, not quite. The wheels of funder bureaucracy move less dramatically, more slowly and much, much more carefully than that. Following its review that concluded in April (!) , RCUK and Universities UK (UUK) are teaming up with the Financial Sustainability Strategy Group and the TRAC Development Group to establishing a group to come up with proposals on how to implement the review’s recommendations. The group is expected to report its proposals by the end of April 2010.
But somehow that doesn't quite have the same ring as 'cry havoc...'
