HE&R Bill, Workshop Summary July 2016

18 Jul 2016

CaSE summary of our sector workshop on the HE & Research bill ahead of its second reading in the House of Commons.

This workshop provided an opportunity to go through the research and innovation aspects of the Bill (particularly part 3 and schedule 9) in depth and by theme. As the bill continues its journey through the parliamentary process, it provided an opportunity our sector to come together and discuss areas of concern and specific bill amendments that may benefit from clarification (whether through further engagement with government, through parliamentary debate or other means).

The discussion was centred around four broad and overlapping themes:

  • UKRI & council links
  • Innovation
  • Teaching & Research
  • Governance

If numbers are a measure of priority the two themes that generated the most interest were UKRI & Council links, and Innovation. The concerns, questions and proposed amendments raised by each table are recorded in detail by theme below.
