Guiding Principles for RSP fund allocation: 

  • The equipment is to be available for any BDI researcher to use, pending appropriate training and/or other booking requirements.
  • The equipment will be added to a database of equipment across the BDI which will be accessible to all researchers, to enable them to identify equipment which may be useful in their research which they can book for use accordingly.
  • The equipment will be labelled as a general use item.
