BBSRC has published its gender pay gap report, containing a snapshot of the organisation's gender pay gap for workers in scope as of 5 April 2017. BBSRC is actively working towards eradicating the gender pay gap within the organisation and this report also contains our plans on how we are addressing the gap.

The UK government has (March 5 2018) issued a document to clarify the UK’s eligibility to participate in Horizon 2020, the EU's flagship programme for science and innovation. Confirmation of the position supports the message in Prime Minister Theresa May's speech on Friday that: "the UK is committed to establishing a far-reaching science and innovation pact with the EU, facilitating the exchange of ideas and researchers".
