BIICL Awarded Independent Research Organisation Status by Research Councils UK

15/04/2013

The British Institute of International and Comparative Law (BIICL) has recently been awarded Independent Research Organisation status by Research Councils UK, the body that administers government funding for research each year across seven research councils. As a result, the Bingham Centre, as a part of BIICL, is now eligible to apply for research funding from the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and the Arts & Humanities Research Council (AHRC). Together, these two research councils have an annual budget of around £400 million and support arts, humanities and social science research from across the UK's university sector and around 25 Independent Research Organisations.
