The UK Research Councils

One of the UK's representatives, Sarah Nicols from the Economic and Social Research Council, has written a blog piece on research being presented at the event. RCUK have also released a collective statement supporting the aims of AAAS.


As two of the strongest research systems in the world, the UK and the US have long been partners in research . The US is the first choice partner for many of the UK's best researchers and vice versa.

To build the strength of this relationship, the UK Research Councils established an RCUK team in the USA. The team works primarily with US federal funders and endowments to promote dialogue between our communities and create an environment that fosters collaboration -
