The Right Honorable Amanda Solloway MP:
“If there is pressure to publish in particular venues, we are wrongly suggesting that where you publish is more important than what you say. I notice that 97% of outputs in the 2014 REF were text-based and published in journals.”
“I am thrilled with the appointment of Professor Leyser and I look forward to working closely with her to drive forward our shared ambition to boost our world-leading research and development.
Since its launch in 2018, UKRI has gone from strength to strength. Professor Leyser has already led a highly collaborative lab in her previous role which will be a great skill to bring to UKRI as it embarks on a new stage of exciting evolution.”
