A vision for UK research

The Council for Science and Technology has published a report “A vision for UK research”  looking at how the UK can maintain its world position, how to maximise the impact of research and how to recruit and retain the best staff. Among the suggestions are one to restructure PhD and masters courses so that PhDs last for 4 years with the first two years possibly being a masters degree course.

The report is available at http://www.cst.gov.uk/news/
