Research Councils UK (RCUK) is calling on the public to test out a new portal aimed at providing better access to information on research funded by the Research Councils.
That’s from something called BBSRC. Here’s the Gateway to Research in question. I got 15 hits on “genetic resources,” the most recent a project to “optimise galanthamine content of daffodil biomass.” Also 29 hits on “plant breeding.” Just one hit for “agrobiodiversity,” a project with CIP on “Biodiversity, agriculture, and livelihoods: Co-evolution and competition in an Andean-Amazonian watershed” which got about £60,000 in 2010. The abstract sounds interesting enough, but that’s all you get. I can’t figure out how to find the actual, you know, results.
But you test it out for yourselves and send your own feedback.
