COVID-19 update: 23 March 2020

Following today’s letter from the Minister for Science, Research and Innovation (https://www.ukri.org/files/news/science-minister-letter-covid19/), Research England has contacted the Vice-Chancellor or Principal at higher education institutions (HEIs) in England asking that they identify a principal point of contact (and alternative in case of absence) through whom requests for information and updates relating to research and knowledge exchange matters relevant to the COVID-19 outbreak can be addressed. If your HEI has not received this notification, it is important that you contact communications@re.ukri.org as a matter of priority so we can update our records accordingly. The relevant funding bodies in the devolved administrations are taking this forward with the HEIs which they fund.
