RCUK is responsible for most of the publicly-funded research within the UK annually investing around £3 billion in research. This investment includes funding for 19,000 doctoral students, 14,000 research staff and 2,000 research fellows. Impacts: People and Skills profiles a number of researchers from different disciplines who have an impact on the economy and society in a variety of ways. Impact arises from the application of knowledge, skills and experience developed in the course of research. It depends on the people who apply their research, or who can see the potential of discoveries by others. There are several personal attributes that RCUK is keen to encourage and this publication has been divided into sections that reflect these qualities.
Impacts: People and Skills is a celebration of just some of the RCUK funded researchers who are having an extraordinary impact on academia, business and wider society. These people, their skills and expertise are vital to the future prosperity of the UK.

Press a button embedded in your clothing and at different times of the day a tiny release of fragrance, your own ‘scent bubble’, could soothe away your anxiety, cheer you up, or solve your sleeplessness. The possibilities of such a fusion of technology, fashion and the most primitive of our senses, the sense of smell, have been the focus of Dr Jenny Tillotson’s research since she began a degree in Fashion Communication at Central Saint Martins in the early 1990s.
