Science, charity New Year Honours and some perspective on the MRC in 2011

Research Fortnight have posted a blog I wrote prior to Christmas in which I gave my ‘glass half-full’ take on what the science budget allocations mean for the Medical Research Council (MRC). 

Elsewhere..in today’s New Year Honours, congratulations go to Adrian Smith, DG Knowledge and Innovation at the Department for Business Innovation and Skills, who has been knighted.  Sir Adrian’s ‘knight in shining armour’ role in the spending review has been widely commented and so what better conclusion to the year.  The Times Higher has a comprehensive list of other honours made should you be looking for one.

And Third Sector magazine has a brief article on charity honours.

Have a safe one.
