This report discusses the proposals of Research Councils UK for the reform of the Research Councils’ (RCs’) peer review system for giving project grants. It treats the RCUK report in the wider context of the dual support system and argues that unless the RCs retain a distinctive role in a well-delineated dual support system (which the RCUK proposals undermine), then logic and political pressures will eventually put them at risk.
