The following table lists all the activities identified by the Cross Cutting Review Team as part of their mapping exercise. Whilst it is believed to be broadly comprehensive of schemes and initiatives at the national level, these are out-numbered by schemes operated at regional or local level, often with RDA/LA support. Nonetheless, work undertaken by Professor Bennett and the experience of RDAs and Departments has been drawn upon to provide a broad estimate of spend at the local and regional level. Inevitably these are indicative figures, as indeed they are for many national and European schemes where detailed disaggregated data does not exist
