Articles for Research

In June 2014 I joint the London-based publishing group Research as research policy reporter. Its main publications are Research Fortnight and Research Europe.

My work at Research Fortnight consists on scrutinising UK research funding agencies, as well as the use of research in parliament and in policymaking.
Institutions that I report on include the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills, the seven UK research councils, Innovate UK (formerly the Technology Strategy Board), government departments, the higher education funding councils and the major research charities. We track research in industry as well as the work of professional societies, trade unions and lobby groups. We also cover research, policy and funding in the devolved administrations in Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland.

Research Europe, meanwhile, covers EU bodies, including the European Commission’s directorates for research and innovation, climate action and environment; the European Research Council; and the European Parliament’s committees that monitor research and spending. It also reports on national bodies in EU member states, particularly in France, Germany, Ireland, the Nordic countries and the UK.

These are some print issues that contain examples of my work:
