Thanks Graham.
Dave King is coming to the Tyndall Assembly in September, so we will try and plant some
ideas with him about this ... but MRC of course retain their proud independence.
The multi-disciplinary money I noticed in the statement and also in the 10-year science
strategy document (in fact Tyndall Centre is named - see p.31 - as one of the exemplars!),
so I hope UEA is onto this one, since we are ahead of the game as far as multi-disciplinary
training and research are concerned.

Mike,
I will put in something under my own name stressing research needs on
climate change and health and I think others should also do likewise. More
generally as far as getting wider cross RC funding for Tyndall work on
climate change and health there are 2 positive developments in SR2004. One
is that �35m of the additional OST allocation has been reserved for
allocation by the Director General of Research Councils for "emerging
priorities and opportunities". Some judicious lobbying (via Dave King?)
might repay dividends. Separately, some money (not sure how much) has been
earmarked for "multidisciplinary research". More info is at:

Subject: Fwd: The Environment and Human Health - A NERC Consultation
You may be interested in this NERC consultation on environment and health.
I guess there is nothing to prevent several of us entering our thoughts
into the NERC process.
We will again be making the point when we shortly meet the NERC, ESRC and
EPSRC chief executives that we believe MRC should be entering the Tyndall
funding consortium to address some of these (climate change related) issues
in a more joined up way.
Please forward as appropriate.
Thanks,
Mike
