Council Members’ remuneration

The Chairperson and the Council Members are appointed by the Department for Business, Innovation and Skills (BIS) on behalf of the Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills. The contract terms vary between individual members, but the terms and conditions of appointment are standard. EPSRC provides each member of Council with a Code of Practice which sets out a framework in which they are expected to operate.

Council members receive an honorarium in recognition of their service to EPSRC, together with a refund of their reasonable expenses. Council members are not employees of EPSRC and the appointments are not pensionable. Members of Council who are civil servants are not entitled to receive an honorarium.
