We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.

The UK Government R&D Roadmap

On 1 July 2020 the Government published its Research and Development Roadmap, setting out a long-term vision to unlock the power of science, research and innovation.

UK Research and Innovation has welcomed the publication of the roadmap. Over summer 2020 and beyond UKRI will work closely in collaboration with our communities and partners to draw together ideas on how we can respond to the opportunities in the roadmap.

A first step in this are two focused roundtable discussions to help guide this engagement and our strategy development over the rest of the year.

Early roundtables

In the weeks following the publication of the government’s R&D roadmap, UKRI hosted two focused roundtables to understand initial reactions to the roadmap and its implications for UKRI and the sector. These discussions were the start of open dialogue to understand the questions and challenges that should inform our future strategy and further engagement.
