The ACSS and BERA respond to UKRI announcements on funding cuts

Alongside other learned societies and the Academy of Social Sciences BERA has co-signed a letter that strongly urges the UK government to reinstate funding for UKRI’s Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), the Newton Fund and university QR funding for GCRF, to meet its existing commitments. 

It is vitally important to the UK itself that research and other activities already contractually agreed with underpinning funding from Official Development Assistance (ODA) continue, even before we consider their  importance for the wider world.

The letter and the full AcSS response and list of signatories can be found below
