No funding novice

August 31, 2007

Your article on institutions' research council success rates ("Manchester leads the cash bonanza", August 24) quotes me as saying that Cambridge University has recently woken up to the opportunities of research funding. In fact, I made this comment with specific reference to applications to the Arts and Humanities Research Council, where we have had spectacular results in 2006-07.

For anyone aware of the research funding landscape in the UK, it would have seemed a surreal remark in such a general context; we have for a very long time ranked highly in all other research council funding tables.
