Nuffield Council of BioEthics Company Profile

14:15 EDT 20th September 2018 | BioPortfolio

The Foundation's income (around £9m a year) comes from the returns on its investments. It does not fund-raise, or receive money from the Government. The Foundation's financial independence and lack of vested interests helps to ensure an impartial and even-handed approach to problems in the projects it funds.

Most of the Foundtion's income is spent on grants some of which are for research and others support practical innovation or development, often in voluntary sector organisations. In both cases the preference is for work that has wide significance, beyond the local or routine. The Foundation looks to support projects that are imaginative and innovative, take a thoughtful and rigorous approach to problems, and have the potential to influence policy or practice.



The Foundation also runs a number of grant programmes that are targeted towards specific purposes. Some provide support for scientists and social scientists at the early stages of their careers; others support particular kinds of projects or people.



Finally, the Foundation sets up and runs projects of its own. The three largest are the Nuffield Council on Bioethics, the Nuffield Languages Programme and the Nuffield Curriculum Centre.
