Scientific Research in British Universities


    EVERY scientific worker will acclaim the example to British industry which has been set by the directors of Imperial Chemical Industries, Ltd., in providing for eighty fellowships at nine universities in Great Britain to be held by senior workers in certain sciences. The need for provision of this kind has been repeatedly stressed in various reports and papers on scientific and industrial research; for example, those from the Parliamentary and Scientific Committee and the London Chamber of Commerce, and in the more recent statement from Nuffield College. The debate had reached a point at which action was clearly called for, and in the scheme which is now announced, the directors of Imperial Chemical Industries, who had obviously been following the debate closely, have given a timely lead.
