The value of a one-to-one

Marieke and I were in Northampton yesterday as part of the DCC institutional engagements.

For the purpose of this survey we identified HEIs that receive more than 10% of their total funding from research and are currently in receipt of one or more EPSRC grants. This gave us our list of one hundred institutions.
