CEH to move to charitable status?


NERC Council has approved in-depth examination of benefits of changing the ownership and governance of the Centre for Ecology & Hydrology and the National Oceanography Centre.

CEH will now begin an in-depth process to examine the benefits of not-for-profit charitable status which will protect their science and allow for potential diversification of funding. NERC will also continue to consider alternative options for the future ownership and governance of the British Geological Survey (BGS). For further details see announcement on the NERC web site.
