We are creating a unified UKRI website that brings together the existing research council, Innovate UK and Research England websites.
If you would like to be involved in its development let us know.

How the UKRI community is helping

How the UKRI community is helping

The researchers and innovators UKRI work with are supporting the effort to tackle the COVID-19 pandemic in the UK and around the world, in every way they can. We are sharing equipment, repurposing facilities and volunteering scientific expertise from our Centres, Institutes and Units up and down the country.

From donating equipment and volunteering, to adapting their expertise to design and rapidly manufacture personal protective equipment (PPE), our communities are working proactively to help combat the impacts of COVID-19. This includes providing essential equipment to hospitals, volunteering on the NHS frontline or as experienced scientists at testing centres. We are also repurposing our own facilities as testing facilities where we can.

Our research staff are also spearheading research to untangle the virus’s inner workings, improve diagnostic testing and develop therapies and vaccines.

Thank you all, for your hard work and dedication.
