The British Academy is committed to conducting regular internal reviews, organising consultations, and commissioning independent evaluations of its funding programmes to ensure that they are meeting the needs of researchers and providing opportunities for their career progression and personal ambitions.
Depending on the outcome of these reviews, we make adaptions to the content and structure of our current portfolio of grants, programmes and fellowships as well as exploring the potential for new ones.
