Abstract

The Scottish research base benefits significantly by attracting research funding fromthe various UK Research Councils and frommajor research charities, most notably, theWellcome Trust. Scotland has about 8.5% of the UK's population but attracts, on a competitive basis, about 15% of the public and charitable research funding allocated throughout the UK. In this context, the current constitutional debate raises a range of questions and issues if Scotland became independent.
