Research grants and financial support to academics and scientists

We're waiting for W Tanner to read recent responses and update the status.

Dear London School of Economics,

Please could you provide full details of:

1. Your institution's policy of transparency reporting for research grants and other financial support received by academics and scientists, including the source of such funds in the course of their academic work.
2. Your institution's policy regarding academics' or scientists' acceptance of research grants or other financial support from foreign governments or state-sponsored organisations.
3. The number of instances where an academic or scientist has failed to report the receipt of research grants or other financial support for their work in the last five years, including the number of times a foreign government or state-sponsored organisation was involved.

Yours faithfully,

W Tanner

GLPD.Info.Rights, London School of Economics

Thank you for your email. As you will appreciate, information requests
place additional demands on the School in terms of costs and staff time.
At present we are having to prioritise our finite resources in order to
meet the unprecedented challenges we are facing during the Coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic.  As such, we need to advise you that while we will
continue to process individual requests, you may experience some delay in
our response during the current pandemic.

Dear W Tanner

 

Further to your recent FoI request, the Schools response is provided (in
red) below:

 

Q1. Your institution's policy of transparency reporting for research
grants and other financial support received by academics and scientists,
including the source of such funds in the course of their academic work.

 

A1. We do not have a formal transparency policy as such, although we do
report through our annual financial reports and on our website news feeds
on noteworthy cases. We also comply with FoI requests in accordance with
the regulations.

 

Q2. Your institution's policy regarding academics' or scientists'
acceptance of research grants or other financial support from foreign
governments or state-sponsored organisations.

 

A2. These are covered by our Donations Acceptance Policy, available on our
website.

Q3. The number of instances where an academic or scientist has failed to
report the receipt of research grants or other financial support for their
work in the last five years, including the number of times a foreign
government or state-sponsored organisation was involved.

 

A3. Your question asks for the number of instances where an academic or
scientist has failed to report the receipt of research grants or other
financial support for their work in the last five years, including the
number of times a foreign government or state-sponsored organisation was
involved.  Unfortunately, the School is only aware of such matters when
they are reported to us.  We do not know where academics have failed to
report this to the school (e.g. in their Declarations of Interest). As
such, we are unable to provide this information as it does not exist.

 

If you think that the information provided does not meet your request,
contact Rachael Maguire on 020 7849 4622 or write to Louise Nadal, School
Secretary, London School of Economics and Political Science, Houghton
Street, London, WC2A 2AE. We will then review the response to your request
and get back to you within 20 working days. You can also contact the
Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they
expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint
directly.
