National Academies produce briefing for Committee stage of Higher Education and Research Bill

News •

The UK National Academies: the British Academy, the Royal Society, the Academy of Medical Sciences and the Royal Academy of Engineering, have produced a briefing seeking clarification on aspects of the Higher Education and Research Bill.

The briefing includes a list of probing amendments for the Committee stage of the Bill process. Probing amendments do not seek to make changes to the wording of the Bill, but trigger a discussion during Committee stage for clarity or explanation on existing points in the Bill.

A copy of the briefing can be seen here.

The Higher Education and Research Bill was introduced to the House of Commons in May. It includes proposals to create a new research and innovation funding body, UK Research and Innovation (UKRI), as well as changes to the higher education landscape in England, as outlined in the White Paper Success as a Knowledge Economy. The UK National Academies produced a map of the proposed changes, available here.
