Report demonstrates the role of EU research funding on UK disciplines

"A new report from the Technopolis Group commissioned by the UK’s four national academies – the British Academy, the Academy of Medical Sciences, the Royal Academy of Engineering and the Royal Society –  demonstrates the role of EU research funding on UK disciplines.

Technopolis analysed the latest figures available from the Higher Education Statistics Authority (from 2014/2015) and found that all academic disciplines received some funding from EU government bodies. The report ranked them by the proportion of their total research funding derived from these sources.
