Delpy in the House of Lords, 11.35 am Tuesday 29 November

EPSRC published its annual report on 24 November.

The Science and Technology Committee of the House of Lords will question David Delpy, Chief Executive of EPSRC, and John Armitt, Chair of EPSRC, on Tuesday 29 November at 11.35 am. The questioning, scheduled for one hour, will be on EPSRC’s recent change to peer review, making National Importance an assessment criterion in addition to research excellence.

Location: Room 4, Palace of Westminster

I’m going to try to attend, and if you’re near enough London and have the time, I urge you to come too. There’s no substitute for a large turnout in convincing the press and legislators that the issues involved are important and that lots of people care about them. You can also see the hearing, live or archived, on Parliament TV.
