[Correspondence] What are funders doing to minimise waste in research?

The Lancet’s Series on reducing waste and increasing value in medical research was published in 2014. Subsequently, developments consistent with the recommendations made in the Series were documented in an article based on informal enquiries made of research funders and regulators, researchers and research institutions, and journal editors. We have explored in greater detail how the most influential of these actors in the research community, the research funders, monitor and take steps to reduce waste in the research they support; and how they support methodology research and research infrastructure needed to show how waste can be reduced.
