Research and the Comprehensive Spending Review 2010

GuildHE and CREST offer evidence as to how  the application of the CSR 2010 impacts upon research in the small and specialist sector, expanding on the following areas of concern:

1 The scale of research activity in Higher Education institutions is now favoured over
its quality.

2 Innovation in specialist areas key to economic growth and vital to regional
development is threatened by concentration.

3 Quality research and teaching are vital to producing high-level graduates.

4 The international reputation of the specialist sector should be leveraged to its full
potential.

5 The general instability in the Higher Education sector in the wake of the CSR needs
to be considered with an eye to unintended consequences.
