BIS asks for input as spending review looms

The top civil servant involved in the research budget has requested views on research priorities in the run-up to the next spending review.

John O’Reilly, director-general of knowledge and innovation at the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, has written to the CBI, the Chief Scientific Advisers Committee, the Council for Science and Technology and the national academies to ask for their input. It is a repeat of the process O’Reilly’s predecessor Adrian Smith conducted in 2010.

O’Reilly has also published his letter online and invited others to submit responses. Replies are due by 17 May and will feed into O’Reilly’s work on the research budget for 2015-16.
