‘Trusted research’ is a research and innovation sector term for protecting the UK’s intellectual property, sensitive research, people and infrastructure from potential theft, manipulation and exploitation, including as a result of interference by hostile actors.
UK Research and Innovation (UKRI) established its trusted research and innovation (TR&I) work programme in response to the increasing need across the sector to:
- help manage and provide guidance and support in ensuring collaborative activities are done safely and securely
- minimise the risks associated with operating within a global research and innovation ecosystem while maximising the opportunities
The programme is also working closely with partners across the sector to see where we can align policies, and where a coordinated approach may be useful.
