Dear UKRI FOI Requests,

I have contacted UKRI via email but haven't had a response. I also tried ringing them but they didn't know who was the best person for me to talk to. I have also contacted Innovate UK and they are unable to provide the info requested without an FOI request.

Names of most grant awardees are available online so I'm not sure why this is any different?

I am requesting the names of the Queen Mary academics named as awardees on the two grants I am interested in please.

Yours sincerely,

Reetika Suri
