Strategic planning

The Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council’s (BBSRC) planning is informed by wide consultation with the research community, policy and industrial end-users of our science, and the wider public.

It addresses key challenges and opportunities in biosciences, including:

  • ensuring a sustainable and world-class research base, and keeping the UK the European location of choice for investment in bioscience research and development
  • developing the new approaches and technologies needed as bioscience becomes
  • increasingly quantitative and predictive
  • accelerating the translation of research outputs into business and policy applications to increase social and economic impact
  • providing skilled scientists for research and business.
