The umbrella funding agency UK Research and Innovation has commissioned evidence reviews on equality, diversity and inclusion, and bullying and harassment.

UKRI announced on 10 January that it had asked Advance HE—a higher education agency owned by the vice-chancellors’ group Universities UK and the group of small and specialist institutions GuildHE—to deliver two reviews on equality, diversity and inclusion in research and innovation. Of these, one will focus on the UK while the other will look at these issues from an international perspective.

Meanwhile, a review on bullying and harassment across the UK and internationally will be delivered by the Global Institute for Women’s Leadership at King’s College London, UKRI said.
