BBSRC in the REF

This analysis demonstrates how BBSRC investments support a growing bioeconomy.

Using the REF impact case studies, BBSRC conducted an analysis of the impacts reported for UK bioscience research. Here you can read the summary document alongside a longer analysis carried out for BBSRC by Digital Science.

The analysis shows that bioscience research and training, supported by 20 years of investment from BBSRC, enabled £72Bn of economic activity and cost savings between 2008 and 2013.
