>I was with John Shepherd earlier this week. He told me he

>I was attending a meeting on the "miilliesym" proposal, and
>we were treated to a talk from Ian Dwyer of NERC (new
>position to co-ordinate global change research) on the
>climate change centre. Two things I picked up that I didn't
>know before (but you may) were
>(1) All the decisions, both on the outline proposals and
>full proposals, will be taken by a panel of experts
>(academics from overseas and industry). There will not be
>the normal peer review system. I asked if there would be the
>opportunity to suggest names for this panel, but the answer
>appeared to be no; the panel will be selected and organised
>by the research councils, chiefly NERC.
>(2) The split of funding for the centre will be (per year) 1
>million NERC, 0.75 million EPSRC, 0.25 million ESRC.
