The UK is home to a highly successful research and innovation system built on the ideas and talents of researchers from all over the world
The UK government has committed to increase its investment in research and development (R&D) to £22 billion a year by 2025 and increase overall investment in R&D to 2.4% of gross domestic product by 2027.
This is an opportunity to make ambitious changes to the way that we do research and use its findings to benefit our economy and society.
