The PedSALi project was a collaboration between Dow Chemicals, Cheshire Innovation and Manchester University. The University work was funded by the EPSRC.

The project ended in failure but the EPSRC paid the University in full.

This suggested that the University had deceived the EPSRC.

Bill Courtney (who traded as Cheshire Innovation) tried to get hold of a copy of the University end of project report for the EPSRC using the Freedom of Information Act. But the University withheld the document.

He then made the same request to the EPSRC.

The EPSRC fulfilled its legal obligations under the FoI Act and provided a copy.

What you see below is a copy of one one of the report pages as annotated by Bill.

It formed part of the evidence he submitted to the Formal Enquiry Panel.
