Our strategy 2022 to 2027

UK Research and Innovation’s (UKRI) first five-year strategy, transforming tomorrow together.

This sets out long-term, high-level priorities for how we will deliver our vision for an outstanding research and innovation system in the UK that provides everyone with the opportunity to contribute and to benefit, enriching lives locally, nationally and globally.

It also highlights UKRI’s key role in delivering the government’s ambitions for the UK as a global leader in research and innovation, and priorities set out in the:

  • plan for growth
  • research and development (R&D) roadmap
  • innovation strategy
  • the R&D people and culture strategy
  • integrated review
  • levelling up white paper.

UKRI’s strategy is underpinned by four principles for change:

  • diversity
  • connectivity
  • resilience
  • engagement.

These principles are fundamental to how we work as an organisation and will help to create the conditions for the UK’s research and innovation system to flourish.

In addition, the strategy outlines six objectives for how UKRI will deliver on its ambitions. Working with government and partners across the sector, to foster world-class people and careers, places, ideas, innovation and impacts, supported by UKRI as a world-class organisation.
