This half-day event follows an invitation sent to institutions asking them to contribute to the Government’s new Science and Innovation Strategy.  

The development of this strategy is currently under way, and the Government has invited us to contribute views and evidence.

The four UK higher education (HE) funding bodies and Research Councils UK (RCUK) are working in partnership to gather evidence from the UK HE sector relating to research and innovation. This evidence will be used to inform any contributions we may variously make to the developing strategy before its announcement in the autumn.


Who can attend

The event is intended to inform responses through collective discussion, address any issues, and provide a further avenue for the funding bodies and RCUK to gather input and evidence. Places will be limited to two delegates per institution.

Institutions from any area of the UK are eligible to register delegates for this event.
