Glass Half Full
Despite recent headlines the outlook for research funding is not (yet) as gloomy as it might at first seem. Recently announced cuts to science and education will predominantly hit capital funding, and mask a rise in recurrent research funding of £106m next year. So, whilst times are getting tighter and there may be trouble ahead, we’re not there yet. In the meantime staff should not be put off applying for research funding – whilst the times are still good.
