The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC) EDI action plan has been developed in consultation with the BBSRC EDI Expert Advisory Group, BBSRC Council and others.

It builds on an evidence base which is helping us to understand where EDI challenges lie within the bioscience research and innovation sector and how the bioscience community differs from wider populations, including UK Research and Innovation and others.

Our evidence-based approach enables us to identify those activities with the highest priority and impact.
